NCCP Fundamental Movement Skills
In developing and teaching a child, we break down simple skills into key components to help the child learn and understand. Given the opportunity to learn a wide range of physical skills, children acquire the basic building blocks for the competence, confidence and motivation to try many physical activities and sports.
Learn to improve the fundamental movement skills in participants through the NCCP Fundamental Movement Skills Workshop, presented by TeamSnap!

To ensure that all athletes experience a positive, safe, and inclusive sport experience, the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) has developed the National Coaching Certification Program's (NCCP) Coaching Athletes with a Disability eLearning module. This eLearning module provides coaches the knowledge to deliver quality, positive sport experience for athletes with behavioural, intellectual, physical and sensory disabilities.
RESPECT IN SPORT FOR COACHES
The Respect in Sport program is a requirement for all coaches that are members of a Provincial Sport Governing Body. The Respect in Sport program will be used to train your organizations' personnel and leaders to recognize, understand and respond to issues of bullying, harassment, abuse and neglect. It may be the single most important training your leaders can eceive to create a safer, healthier, and more positive environment for our athletes!
