The Coaching Association of Canada unites stakeholders and partners in its commitment to raising the skills and stature of coaches, and ultimately expanding their reach and influence. Through its programs, the CAC empowers coaches with knowledge and skills, promotes ethics, fosters positive attitudes, builds competence, and increases the credibility and recognition of coaches.
We aim to enhance the experiences of all athletes and participants in Canada through quality coaching. We foster this through key pillars of coaching leadership and sustainable coaching education. Our coach development supports coaches from grassroots, to professional levels and beyond.
In 2021, the CAC celebrated its 50th year of being at the heart of sport in Canada. The organization’s focus on the athlete experience is deep-rooted and dates back to 1971. The CAC has since grown and flourished to surpass the 2M mark of records of coaches with access to training and certification through the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) and its partners.
