To qualify for selection as a Coach Developer, an individual must have successfully completed the online evaluation of Make Ethical Decisions AND successfully demonstrated his or her competency by completing the relevant sport-specific pathway.

The Coach Developer pathways are as follows:

Training: Coach Developer candidates must complete training, consistent across Canada. The following training is required by all Coach Developers:

  1. Core Training: Provides Coach Developers with the skills to perform their role. For a calendar of upcoming training opportunities, please click here.
  2. Content-specific Training (sport or multi-sport)***: This includes microfacilitation and/or microevaluation which give Coach Developers an opportunity to practice delivery with their peers.
  3. Co-delivery: This is a chance for the new Coach Developer to practice with real coaches alongside an experienced Coach Developer.

Once a Coach Developer has all of the above training pieces they are considered “TRAINED”.

Evaluation: Evaluation confirms that the Coach Developer is capable of certain abilities which are deemed important in the training of coaches.

Once a Coach Developer has been evaluated they are considered: “CERTIFIED”.
