Coaching Association of Canada

The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) and the Aboriginal Sport Circle (ASC) view coaches as a cornerstone of community sport and recreation. They play a key role as agents of social change. Their guidance can have a direct and lasting impact on the healthy and active lifestyles of community members, especially youth. 

Because of the important roles Aboriginal coaches play, the CAC and the ASC have made it a priority to educate, promote the value of certification, and establish meaningful participation of Aboriginal peoples in the NCCP. 

The Aboriginal Coaching Program contains culturally relevant materials meant to engage Aboriginal coaches and empower them to make a positive, long-lasting impact in their communities.
