Cycling BC provides coach development by implementing the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), and supporting coaches working directly with athletes.
The NCCP, delivered in partnership with the government of Canada, provincial/territorial governments, and national/provincial/territorial sport organizations, gives coaches the confidence to succeed. The NCCP distinguishes between training and certification: Coaches participate in training opportunities to acquire or refine the skills and knowledge required for their particular coaching context. After training, coaches must demonstrate ability in the key competency areas through an evaluation process to become certified.
Cycling BC is building a world class coach education system for cycling coaches. Through combining best practices, offering opportunities to develop, and supporting coaches who aspire to grow their capacity, the sport will be supported over a long term. Instructors and Coaches who recognise value in the plan cam be backed by a Cycling BC insurance policy, and a licensing scheme that supports them working within defined scopes of practice.
