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.
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).
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.
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.
