Through its coaching education, research, and advocacy programs, the CAC promotes safety in sport, works to increase diversity and inclusion within Canada's coaching community, and strives to enhance the sport experiences of participants across the country.
The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) provides standardized, inclusive, and sport safety education to coaches and coach developers across 65 sports. Since 1974, more than 1.8 million coaches have engaged in NCCP training to develop their own coaching skills and to improve the performance of their participants at all levels of sport.
