• Certification from the National Coaching Certification Program: A Plus for All Coaches and Athletes!
Oct 11, 2017
It has been possible for some time to require coaches to hold a valid certification in order to train athletes for various local, regional and national sporting activities.

The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), developed in partnership with the Government of Canada, provincial and territorial governments, and national, provincial and territorial sporting organizations, provides coaches with training adapted to the type of athletes they plan to train, whether these athletes are beginners or professionals. This training certifies coaches in the sport of their choice.

This chart lists the websites of several sporting federations in Quebec and links to upcoming training sessions. Please note that for certain sporting events, such as the North American Indigenous Games, it is now mandatory for coaches to be NCCP certified to train and accompany athletes.

If you’re interested in obtaining this certification, please contact the federations by email or telephone for more information.
