, COMMUNITY SPORT COACH PROGRAM
"Introduction to Orienteering"
Community Sport Coaches usually are parents, teachers, group leaders, O-club members and youth who wants to keep in touch with the sport . They are not necessarily experienced orienteers but they have a desire to contribute towards the junior programs and the active sport community.
The training program (workshop) for Community Coaches is 9 hours long and split into three segments with outdoor practical activities.
The course will introduce participants to the coaching role, practice planning and will cover basic orienteering techniques. Be prepared to spend couple hours outside and have fun teaching each other.
After registration you will be added to the CAC 's database and receive an NCCP number. By actively participating in the workshop you will earn the Trained Community Sport Coach status.
For young sport leaders :
Q: Why should I become a youth sport leader?
By taking this course and become a trained community coach you will be able to volunteer (and later work) with kids sport programs. You can transfer the skills you learn into different multi- sport programs, community events, and school programs.
Why is it good to get involved?
A. There is no formal evaluation of Community Coaches after the workshop. As such, new CC's will remain as "Trained" and they recommended to coach with a help of a certified coach, indirect supervision.
Q. After the CC workshop, will I be registered as a coach with the CAC?
A. Yes. You will receive a NCCP number and you will be entered into the CAC's certification database (The Locker) where your progress as a coach (in all sports) will be recorded. There is more information about NCCP certification on the GET COACHING website.
