The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) is a coach training and certification program with the objective of developing the abilities of coaches working with athletes at all levels, from the community level through to high-performance sport. Coaching is great opportunity for local skiers to share their passion for Cross Country skiing and gain personal leadership, ski technique, and coaching skills. For a comprehensive overview of NCCP (training, evaluation, certification) for cross country skiing visit the Nordiq Canada website. The  Cross Country BC website offers resources for coaches.
How to become a Coach

To Start:

To register for a coaching course you’ll need an NCCP #, which you can register for in the Locker 
Step 1
The Introduction of Community Coaching (ICC) is broken down into 2 modules which are both online.  
(1) Initiation into Sport & (2) Intro into Coaching 

After completing the 2 modules online, you will be qualified to coach Bunnies (age 5) and can be a helper coach for Jack Rabbits 1-2 (ages 6-8).

Step 2

If you want to coach Jack Rabbits (ages 6-9) or assist with TA (ages 10+), there is another course to complete: the Community Coaching (CC).  This course is in the classroom at WOP and on snow and includes both classic and skate technique.  

Step 3

If you want to coach TA (ages 10+), you need to complete both the L2T Dryland and L2T on snow workshops.  

Coaches will be reimbursed any costs of coaching courses if they commit to a season of coaching with Whistler Nordics.
