Coaching education and professional development opportunity hosted by Canadian Sport Institute Pacific
VICTORIA, BC – Canadian Sport Institute Pacific is hosting the International Coaching School (ICS) event from May 28th – June 4th at the Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence (PISE) in Victoria, BC. This event is designed for coaches looking to complete NCCP requirements and/or partake in high performance professional development.
The ICS gives aspiring coaches the opportunity to enter one or both of two distinct streams:
- Sport Performance Coaching Certificate (SPCC) stream – which features eight NCCP modules; or
- High Performance Coach Advance (HPCA) stream – in which coaches will participate in a professional development advance with some of B.C.’s and Canada’s best coaches
Sport Performance Coaching Certificate (SPCC) stream
The SPCC runs from Saturday, May 28th to Friday, June 3rd and kicks off with the Managing Conflict module.
In this stream, coaches can take six NCCP modules at the Competition-Development level and two at the Competition-Introduction stage.
For those trying to earn NCCP certification, but unable to fit time into busy schedules, this event is ideal: The SPCC gives attendees the chance to complete eight multi-sport modules in just one week while saving money on registration and travel costs normally associated with achieving certification. Courses may be taken individually, but those who complete all eight at the ICS will earn a certificate in Sport Performance Coaching accredited by the BC Private Career Training Institute Agency.
Space is limited to 25 coaches and spots can be secured here: https://www.regonline.com/2016internationalcoachingschool
High Performance Coach Advance (HPCA) stream
Occurring at the end of the ICS, the HPCA is a two-day advance happening on Friday and Saturday, June 3rd-4th.
The overall theme of the 2016 HPCA is “Coaching Effectiveness” and will be led by experts in the field: Wade Gilbert – Editor-In-Chief, International Sport Coaching Journal; David Hill – Coaching Lead, Canadian Sport Institute Pacific; and Dr. Shaunna Taylor – Executive Director, PacificSport Okanagan.
Exclusive to national, provincial, Advanced Coaching Diploma alumni, or CIS/CCAA coaches, the HPCA is an opportunity to network, share best practices, and learn from some of the best in the profession. Attendance will be by invite-only, so those interested in attending must contact the event organizer at firstname.lastname@example.org for approval.
“The International Coaching School event is a fantastic opportunity for all coaches who are looking for ongoing professional development and formal NCCP multi-sport modules. The Sport Performance Coaching Certificate includes all six NCCP Competition-Development modules as well as Make Ethical Decisions and Designing a Basic Sport Program. These modules are often a requirement for many sports’ Competition-Development pathway and the ICS allows coaches to attend all modules in one week. The two-day High Performance Coach Advance brings together some of BC and Canada’s top coaches to network and share best practices and gives NCCP Professional Development credits.” – David Hill, Coaching Lead, Canadian Sport Institute Pacific
