Community Courses scheduled for Fort Smith, Yellowknife

We have scheduled two Community Coaching (CC) workshops for 2022 – one in Yellowknife and one in Fort Smith. We are also in the process of scheduling CANSI I in Hay River and L2T On-snow in Yellowknife in the new year. 
Community Coaching builds on Community Coaching Introduction. There are two steps.

Community Coaching: This 13-hour in-class and on-snow workshop is delivered by your Division . The course teaches coaches how to lead a skill development program to children in the FUNdamentals stage of development (Jackrabbits). Coaches also learn how to:

  • teach basic cross-country skiing skills (classic and skate)
  • design a seasonal plan
  • select equipment and prepare skis for participants of this age

After completing this course, coaches have the status “Community Coaching Trained.” Coaches can proceed to Evaluation, or to Competition Coaching Introduction (CCI-L2T).

Evaluation: To become Community Coaching Certified, you will complete the NCCP Make Ethical Decisions online evaluation and complete the NCCP Community Coaching Experience Form, available in the Document Centre.

Participants should note there is a $25 fee for the Community Coaching (CC) course, which covers the cost Nordiq Canada charges CCNWT for running the course. This is payable by cheque or cash (can be given to the instructor), and I am just going to check and see if we can accept etransfers. Participants also need to have taken NCCP Coach Initiation in Sport and Introduction to Community Coaching online in the Locker before registering for these courses.
 There is room for 10 participants in each course.
