ICS International Coaching School

High Performance Sport Coaching Education and Professional Development

The International Coaching School brings together some of the brightest coaching minds in Canada to deliver educational opportunities for high performance coaches and share their experiences – from provincial games all the way to the Olympic and Paralympic Games.

Taking place at Canadian Sport Institute Pacific’s Victoria campus, the International Coaching School is offered through two streams: the Sport Performance Coaching Certificate and the High Performance Coach Advance.

The Sport Performance Coaching Certificate stream offers coaches enhanced training in the NCCP Competition-Development modules in an interactive multi-sport setting. Coaches will have the opportunity to complete up to eight NCCP modules, as well as earn the Sport Performance Coaching Certificate from the Canadian Sport Institute Pacific, in only one week.

The High Performance Coach Advance is geared toward Varsity, Provincial, National, and Advanced Coaching Diploma (NCI) alumni coaches working with athletes in the ‘Train to Train’ through to the ‘Train to Win’ stages of the Long-Term Athlete Development (LTAD) pathway. Coaches have the opportunity to engage and network with their peers, while sharing best practices under a new theme each year.
