Competition-Introduction Multi-Sport Modules – This context is designed for Coaches of athletes moving from the FUNdamentals to the Learn to Train and Train to Train stages of Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD).

The context consists of five modules: Make Ethical Decision, Planning a Practice,  Design a Basic Sport Program, Teaching and Learning, and Basic Mental Skills.

Many of these have been integrated by sports into their own Sport-Specific workshops while other sports require their Coaches to take them separately through our network. All of these Multi-Sport modules can help you reach higher as a Coach, and can also be counted towards maintenance of certification.

We are excited that Coach NB has received a grant through the Go NB Grant Program for 2021 . The Go NB Grant will allow Coach NB to reduce the rate for the multi-sport modules by 60%.  The Sport & Recreation Branch from the Dept of Tourism, Heritage, and culture is committed to providing funding in support of our NB coaches.   Please note this is only available for NB resident Coaches. We will accept registrations from coaches from other provinces, however we can not offer the discounted rate.

We’re trying to find new ways to support our NB coaches and reduce any barriers that keep coaches from being the best they can be!

NCCP Basic Mental Skills


The goal of the NCCP Basic Mental Skills module is to support coaches in developing mental skills in their day-to-day practice as a coach.

*Note: There are similarities between this module and the NCCP Psychology of Performance module. While this module provides an overview to mental skill development and application, the NCCP Psychology of Performance module covers the knowledge of mental skill development at a deeper level and provides more opportunities for coaches to practise. Both modules follow a similar structure, yet they cover different depths of applying the development of mental skills.
