Get NCCP Certified

The NCCP is a game changer. The National Coaching Certification Program gives coaches the training and tools they need to succeed – in coaching and in life. NCCP training gives coaches the skills and self-confidence to excel, and to instil that confidence in their athletes. Ultimately, that’s what NCCP is all about: developing responsible coaches, inspiring future leaders, and celebrating our potential, both on and off the field of play.

Due to the recent logistical changes implemented by the new provincial government, has requested that we postpone the NCCP courses  taking place  November 16th, & Nov 22nd-23rd. Please check back regularly for new dates in the New Year. We apologize for any inconvenience this may have caused.
