Coach Developer Update

Coach Developers are an integral part of the NCCP.  They are ambassadors of the program and are front line communicators.  As it has already been communicated, in an effort to simplify the Coach Developer Pathway, CAC has recently made changes to now include three distinct roles (previously there were six):
* Learning Facilitator (LF);
* Coach Evaluator (CE); and
* Master Coach Developer (MCD).
The typical pathway for someone who wants to become a Coach Developer, for all three roles, has not changed and involves the following steps:

On January 11th, the Coach Developer area of the Locker will be upgraded with new functions and display.  These changes should allow for easier tracking of Coach Developers within the Locker.  You should be receiving an email from your NSO on January 11th that will provide more detail on these changes.  If you do not receive an email from your NSO, please contact the CAS office at and we will forward you a copy.
For more information on how to become a Coach Developer in any of the three roles, to access Frequently Asked Questions, or to refer to a calendar of upcoming Core Training opportunities, please visit

Leading the Way:
Working with LGBTQI2S
Athletes and Coaches Webinar

Register today for this educational webinar!

This webinar will focus on what steps sport organizations can take to ensure their sport is welcoming to sexual and gender diverse minorities. Building on CAAWS' Leading the Way; Working with LGBTQ Athletes and Coaches and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport's Creating Inclusive Environments for Trans Participants in Canadian Sport resources, participants will gain an understanding of what changes need to be implemented, how to do so, and the resources available to assist them.

The webinar will be led by Jennifer Birch-Jones, CAAWS Program Lead for LGBTQI2S Inclusion in Sport. 

Date: January 13th, 2017 12:00 PM - 1:30 PM EST

The Respect in Sport (RiS) program will be used to train coaches, sport personnel and sport leaders to recognize, understand and respond to issues of bullying, harassment, abuse and neglect. This may be the single most important training sport leaders can receive to create a safer, healthier, and more positive environment for our athletes! The program can be accessed by coaches, officials, team leaders, board members and staff.
Active coaches should contact their Provincial Sport Organization if they are unsure of the RiS deadline for their sport.  To get more information and to access the program go to
