NCCP Certification Levels
In order for our coaches to coach in the Ontario Provincial Championships, they must meet certain NCCP (National Coaching Certification Program) requirements. NCCP in the past included three major compnents, namely Theory, Technical and Practical and were called Intro to Comp (Level 1) and Intro to Comp Adv (Level 2). Now it is called Learn to Train, Train to Train and Train to Compete.
The following is an in-depth look at the NCCP Certification levels required for each age group for a Head Coach and an Assistant Coach.
