Skate Canada Professional Coaches

Skate Canada trains and certifies their coaches under the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) standards set by the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC). All coaches must go through Skate Canada’s NCCP and hold an active status. Throughout coach training, coaches earn different NCCP statuses to further their coach qualifications. In this respect, a coach’s NCCP status reflects the level they are qualified to coach. Any coach instructing in Skate Canada clubs or schools must have an active NCCP status and be registered as a Skate Canada Professional Coach for the current membership season.
