New Coaching Requirements
Hockey Canada has implemented a new coaching stream that the Alliance has adopted moving forward.
Hockey Canada’s National Coach Certification Program (NCCP) is a competency-based program. The program enables coaches to build their coaching tools and knowledge of the game, so they can work effectively with their players.Coaches enter into a ‘stream’ of coaching by taking part in clinics that are relative to the athletes that they are working with.
Community Coach Stream
COACH 1 - Intro Coach
• working with entry level players
COACH 2 - Coach Level
• working with community and recreational teams, i.e. Novice, Atom
Competition Introduction Stream
• working with provincial and regional teams, i.e. Peewee rep, Junior B
Competition Development Stream
High Performance 1
• working with national and international teams, i.e. Bantam AAA, Midget AAA, University
Within the Hockey Canada structure the Community Coach Stream and Competition Introduction Stream are delivered at the provincial level, i.e. ALLIANCE Hockey. Competition Development Streams are delivered by Branches in conjunction with Hockey Canada and/or through Hockey Canada.
The following three charts detail the three main streams of hockey that athletes move through in their development. The new NCCP model attempts to mirror this athlete model with the coaching development model to ensure that coaches are being educated with the necessary tools to meet the athlete’s needs.
