Gymnastics Canada’s Coach Education Program adheres to the standards of the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) as set out by the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC). With the Provincial/Territorial Gymnastics Organizations, Gymnastics Canada mandates that any individual coaching in a Gymnastics Canada member club must be a trained or certified coach under the NCCP for the gymnastics discipline in which they are coaching. Along with the development and delivery of the NCCP to coaches throughout the country, Gymnastics Canada works closely with the Provincial/Territorial Gymnastics Organizations (who are responsible for hosting and scheduling NCCP courses) to ensure that our member clubs continue to provide sound training programs in a safe learning environment that meet the needs of all gymnastics participants.
If you or someone you know is interested in becoming a gymnastics coach, please inquire with either Gymnastics Newfoundland & Labrador or your local gymnastics club. Most, but not all, new coaches will register for courses and training through the gymnastics club that they intend on coaching for. For more information about NCCP Coaching Requirements and the Foundations Pathway for new coaches, please read the "Become A Coach" document below . If you have any questions please email Gymnastics Newfoundland & Labrador.
Respect In Sport (RiS)
Respect in Sport is an on-line training course for coaches and sport leaders. It was developed to provide youth-serving organizations with a tool to assist coaches in identifying and dealing with abuse, neglect, harassment, discrimination and bullying in sport. GNL requires that all club coaches complete the 3-hour Respect in Sport On-line Program. For more information on this program or to begin the course, please visit: Respect in Sport for Activity Leaders, Gymnastics Canada.
