The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) was launched in 1974 to give coaches the confidence to succeed. The program has constantly evolved over the years to stay at the forefront of delivering programs that respect the principles and science of long-term athlete development, while also reflecting the changes within Canadian sport - from the science of training, to competition strategy and tactics, to the athletes themselves.
Sport Manitoba’s community recognizes the value of having certified NCCP coaches that are engaged in Professional Development programs which reinforce the values of lifelong learning and sharing in the coaching community.
Sport Manitoba Coaching has a menu of sessions and topics that we can deliver across the province, both NCCP and non-NCCP, to help provide education to all coaches in Manitoba. Sessions can vary in length from 90 minutes to six hours. All of our sessions also meet the Coach Association of Canada Professional Development requirements for certification maintenance.
