Q: What is the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP)?

A: The NCCP is a training and certification program for coaches, offered across Canada in more than 60 sports, not just soccer. The program was designed to meet the needs of a wide range of coaches - from those who introduce youngsters to sport to those who work with Canada's high performance athletes.

The NCCP is a collaborative program of the Government of Canada, the provincial/territorial governments, the national/provincial/territorial sport federations, and the Coaching Association of Canada.

Since its inception, more than 875,000 coaches have taken part in NCCP activities that have helped them to develop the skills, knowledge, and attitudes required to coach effectively.

The NCCP prepares coaches to:

  • better meet the needs of all participants in sport
  • provide a positive sport experience to participants
  • provide opportunities for participants to achieve their full potential in and through sport.

Q: What is a NCCP coaching certificate and where to get one?

A: To get a coaching certificate, you need to sign up for the coaching clinics that are being offered by the ECSA at least once every year. Once you complete the course, you will receive a temporary certificate from the clinic instructor. Your name, address and other information will be sent to NCCP office by the clinic instructor. You will eventually receive your official NCCP coaching certificate transcript in mail.

You can also sign up with the NCCP Web site, once you know your CC#. Once signed up, you will receive a user name and login. You will be able to print the official transcript of your coaching certificates yourself.
