Become a Coach

The NCCP is currently transitioning away from delivering Level 1, 2, and 3 programming. The Levels-NCCP courses have been replaced by competency based coach education opportunities that are grouped into three main streams: Competition Stream, Instruction Stream, and Community Sport Stream. Gymnastics Canada has completed the development of our Community Sport Stream NCCP programs, and our Competition Stream NCCP programs are currently in development. We will not have any Instruction Stream programs.

Gymnastics Canada’s Coach Education Program adheres to the standards of the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) as set out by the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC).

With the Provincial/Territorial Gymnastics Organizations (PTOs), Gymnastics Canada mandates that any individual coaching in a Gymnastics Canada member club must be a trained or certified coach under the NCCP for the gymnastics discipline in which they are coaching. Along with the development and delivery of the NCCP to coaches throughout the country, Gymnastics Canada works closely with the PTOs (who are responsible for hosting and scheduling NCCP courses) to ensure that our member clubs continue to provide sound training programs in a safe learning environment that meet the needs of all gymnastics participants.

What is the NCCP?

The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), launched in 1974 and delivered in partnership with the government of Canada, provincial/territorial governments, and national/provincial/territorial sport organizations, gives coaches the confidence to succeed. 
NCCP workshops are designed for all types of coaches. Whether you’re thinking about coaching your child’s recreational-level class, or you’re already the head coach of a national team, the NCCP has workshops to meet your needs.
