NATIONAL COACHING CERTIFICATION PROGRAM - NCCP
Over the last few years, Hockey Canada has undertaken a re-design of the National Coaching Certification Program. The new program is aimed at delivering educational activities to coaches that allow them to have a more meaningful and positive impact on the players they coach. Coaches participating in the new program, who are familiar with the original NCCP, will see several key changes to the program.
The first significant change will have coaches attend educational sessions that are targeted at meeting the needs of the players they are working with. As a result, not all coaches will begin their education program at the same place. Coaches will have the opportunity to enter into the stream of coaching that is appropriate for the players they coach.
The second significant change is that coaches will receive coaching materials that are practical and easy to implement with the players they work with. The course materials will make the transition from theory-based lecture activities to interactive sessions requiring coaches to work with the tools specific to the level of their players.
The new coach education program is learner-driven. The course leader will facilitate the learning opportunities coaches will engage in. Through a series of specifically designed activities, the coach will become an active learner prior to the seminar, throughout the seminar, and after leaving the seminar.
