The success of a sports program depends a great deal on the quality of the coach. That's why the Coaching Association of Canada recommends that all coaches in Canada, whether novice or master, become certified in the National Coaching Certified Program (NCCP).
Competition Coach is a 2-day workshop. It is recommended that individuals have a good understanding of the game and technical skills (e.g. competitive curler with no previous coaching experience).
The Competition Coach will learn the following from the perspective of working with Intermediate to Advanced-skilled teams.
- Teaching and learning Strategies
- Strategy and Tactics
- Delivery and Brushing Skills
- Skills Analysis
- Practice Planning, including Safety and EAP (Emergency Action Plan)
- Drills to Correct
!!!!! IMPORTANT INFORMATION !!!!!
The primary difference between the Community Sport Stream and the Competition Stream is evaluation.
In order for a coach to be deemed "Certified", the coach must undergo a mandatory evaluation.
Coaches can begin their training in the Competition Stream (i.e. Community Stream is not a prerequisite). HOWEVER, coaches need to have a good understanding of the game and technical skills. New coaches are strongly recommended to take the Club Coach workshop to get the fundamentals of teaching the curling delivery that is not provided in the Competition Coach course. This will allow coaches to enhance their knowledge and skill base.
