Did you know that September 22-30, 2018 is National Coaches Week? This is a time to celebrate the positive impact that coaches have on athletes and communities across Canada. This week is an opportunity to recognize coaches for the integral role they play by saying #ThanksCoach!
As a part of this special week the Coaching Association of Canada is saying #ThanksCoach by offering three free NCCP online training modules. These are all valuable resources for coaches to take advantage of – don’t miss out on the chance to earn Professional Development points (five per module) towards recertification.
The modules being offered to coaches cover different areas of sport:
Hockey Canada’s National Coach Certification Program is a competency-based program. The program enables coaches to build their coaching tools and knowledge of the game, so they can work effectively with their players.
These modules are just a few of the resources that coaches can use to help increase their knowledge of the sport. For those who prefer to learn visually, the Video Coach series breaks down real game clips to explain step by step tactics, strategy and key skills. The drills in the Chalk Talk series put players in situations that they will encounter in games giving them the opportunity to create, problem-solve, and use the concepts they have learned in practice. Coaches can also take advantage of the Coaching Resources page which offers programs like the Hockey Canada Network and other tools.
