September 22nd – 30th, 2018
We can’t stop celebrating COACHES in Ontario! With your help, we will be asking Canadians to join together to celebrate the tremendous positive impact coaches have on athletes and their own communities.
We are seeking enthusiastic towns and communities in Ontario to apply to host an NCCP Community Clinic. In celebration of National Coaches Week in Ontario this year, the Coaches Association of Ontario will be providing support to at least four (4) imaginative community partners from across the province. An NCCP Community Clinic is a weekend of NCCP workshops tailored to serve the needs of that community. Eligible community partners could be a town or city by itself, or a group of nearby towns or a region.
We expect the Community Partners who are selected to raise the bar in celebration of all things COACHING! Imagine creative ways to highlight the accomplishments of local sport coaches who make a difference, who dedicate time to the local high school team or rep team, and those men and women who are the heart of sport in your community.
Selected communities will receive:
- Financial and logistical support to host National Coaching Certification Programs that they can offer to new coaches in their community at minimal cost to the participants.
- High profile as a featured Community Partner on the Coaches Association of Ontario website leading up to and during 2018 National Coaches Week.
- Swag kit to give to all coaches who attend an NCCP workshop.
- Social media and communication kit support.
Here are the 5Ws and other details:
WHAT is an NCCP Community Clinic – A weekend full of community-level coach development and trainings (2-3 workshops/day) offered at highly subsidized rates ($5-$25)
