The Coaches Association of Saskatchewan is hosting a number of workshops this fall. The most common workshops required from Athletics coaches are Leading Drug Free Sport and Managing Conflict (under Competition Development) and Making Ethical Decision (under Competition Introduction). Clubs and coaches who have questions on what is required should contact Jason Reindl at firstname.lastname@example.org and he will be able to help confirm pathway requirements towards certification.
Coach Initiation in Sport is an online NCCP module developed to introduce new or experienced coaches to the foundational skills in coaching. The Coach initiation in Sport module will also introduce coaches to the NCCP, a valuable tool for preparing for a coach's first in-person NCCP workshop.
