3 Steps to Responsible Coaching:
- Rule of Two
- Background Screening
- Ethics Training
Keeping Sport Healthy and Safe
- 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 for our programs. The NCCP workshops help prospective coaches gain the skills and knowledge required to work with all age groups and competition levels.
- For more information, visit coach.ca and cccski.com/Programs/Coaching-Development.
- The CCC coaching license is aimed at all active cross country ski coaches in Canada who are coaching at least 7 hours per year with a registered cross country ski club (like Inuvik's club).
- An “active” coach is anyone who performs typical coaching tasks with a registered club, including delivering practices or assisting with delivery of practices, with any age group, for at least 7 hours per year.
- It is FREE, and you are covered by the CCC Liability insurance, as long as other Minimum Mandatory Coaching Qualification requirements are met.
- Sign up for your licence on Zone 4 every year, starting July 1st (click on "Get a Licence).
Long Term Athlete Development (LTAD) Model
Children, youth, and adults need to do the right things at the right time to develop in their sport or activity – whether they want to be hockey players, dancers, figure skaters, or gymnasts. Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) describes the things athletes need to be doing at specific ages and stages.
BENEFITS OF LTAD
- Rise in levels of physical literacy
