What is a Host Partner?

The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) host partner can be any New Brunswick (NB) community and/or competition Coach, sport and/or recreation organization, secondary, collegiate, and/or university institution that have an agreement with Coach NB to deliver NCCP workshop with Multi-Sport Trained/Certified Coach Developers (CD) in their community. NCCP host partners are approved after submitting an application to host a workshop and must agree to deliver the workshops according to Coach NB’s standards.

What is the NCCP?

The NCCP is a world renowned Coach education program which enhances quality coaching. It empowers Coaches to gain knowledge and skills to impact the lives of Canadians.

Why the NCCP?

To ensure that all Coaches have the right tools to serve as positive leaders within their communities; To guarantee lifelong learning, ongoing development, and to foster the advancement of sport in NB; To ensure the competency and quality of NB coaches.

What is a Coach Developer?

CDs are not simply experienced Coaches or transmitters of coaching knowledge – they are trained to develop, support, and challenge Coaches to go on honing and improving their knowledge and skills in order to provide positive and effective sport experiences for all participants. In short, CDs need to be experts in learning, as well as experts in coaching.

NCCP Coach Developers include Learning Facilitators (LFs), Coach Evaluators (CEs), and Master Coach Developers (MCDs).
