NCCP Multi-Sport Courses

Coaches BC offers the following National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) multi-sport courses, taken in the classroom and many are also offered through the NCCP Home Study program. You can download the NCCP Multi-Sport Modules outline here.

As sports are integrating into the new system, some sports have integrated the multi-sport modules with the sport-specific components (requiring their coaches only take the sport-specific courses). Check with your BC Provincial Sport Organization first to confirm the training you require. 


Fundamental Movement Skills

The Fundamental Movement Skills (FMS) workshop focuses on training coaches who are working with athletes who are in the Active Start or Fundamentals stages of long-term athlete development. Based upon the fundamental stages of the Canadian Sport for Life model of long-term athlete development, this workshop explores core NCCP themes such as fair play, safety responsibility, and communication with an innovative skill development process. Participants are given the opportunity to practice strategies to imporve fundamental movement skills such as throwing, hopping, skipping, jumping, kicking, striking, balancing, catching, and agility.
