Coaching

As a member club of Cross Country Canada, the Inuvik Ski Club uses the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) to train and certify all coaches. The NCCP workshops help prospective coaches gain the skills and knowledge required to work with all age groups and competition levels.

Our sport organization pledges to align our practices with Phase 1 of the Responsible Coaching Movement and is committed to ensuring that our athletes and coaches are protected.

Check your NCCP certification status
The NCCP Database is an important tool that supports the efforts of all Canadians involved in coach education. Access to this database will provide all coaches with the opportunity to track their progress and guide their development.  Go to the CAC website to view your transcripts.

The NCCP model defines a coach as:

  • In training when some required training has been completed. “Training” is provided through sport-specific workshops exclusively up to the CCI context and a combination of sport-specific and non sport-specific workshops for the subsequent contexts (CCD and above).
     
  • Trained when all required training is complete for a given context. In addition to attending workshops, coaches are required to meet some practical stage-specific requirements.
     
  • Certified when all training and evaluation requirements have been met. Coaches competencies are evaluated on their demonstrated ability to perform within a context in areas such as program design, practice planning, performance analysis, program management, ethical coaching, support to participants during training, and support to participants in competition.
