Coaching Association of Canada


Triathlon Canada offers the following NCCP workshops:

Triathlon Youth Community Coach: This workshop is appropriate for those who want to coach children in triathlon and/or related sports. The practical and applied training will integrate the sport’s values into physical training and teach coaches the 3F’s of coaching children (fun, form, fitness) while educating them in physical literacy and the sport’s various techniques.

Triathlon Adult Community Coach: This workshop is for both beginner and experienced coaches who are currently coaching, or intend to coach athletes 18 and older. Through this two-day workshop, coaches will learn how to plan safe and effective practices, make ethical decisions, and learn basic technical skills.

*Please note: you must be 16 to take either of these workshops.

Competition Introduction: This 2-day workshop is designed for coaches who have completed a triathlon Community Sport Coaching workshop and who wish to learn applied planning and training, how to create a yearly training plan (YTP), and to deepen their knowledge of skills assessment and performance analysis.
