The professional development of Aboriginal Coaching Modules (ACM) through NCCP certification has been identified by the Aboriginal Sport Circle (ASC) as a national priority.
To educate and promote the value of the NCCP and to establish meaningful participation of Indigenous peoples in this national program, the ASC embarked on a multi-year process to develop supplemental training material for Aboriginal coaches taking NCCP workshops. The results of this process are the Aboriginal Coaching Modules, which respond to the need for a national training curriculum with content that reflects the uniqueness of Indigenous cultures, values, and lifestyles.
The ACM is a professional development training tool for Indigenous and non-Indigenous coaches who coach Indigenous athletes, as they become certified through the NCCP.
The ACM is comprised of three modules:
Individual and Community Health and Wellness
The Manitoba Aboriginal Sports & Recreation Council also has resources available related to the Aboriginal Resource Module.
Sport Manitoba Coaching partnered with MASRC to provide a resource for Manitoba coaches that outlines the TRC Calls to Action 87-91 and identifies clear steps on how to respond to each Call to Action and implement them into your sport program.
