Take a look at the roster of Alberta coaches who have represented their sports on the world stage. We've started with the Olympics and Paralympics in more recent years, but we would love to build up a database of Alberta coaches who have taken their teams to world cups and championships, international multi-sport games, and any other notable events which represent a significant accomplishment in coaching.
The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) is working with its partners to develop a comprehensive Coach Developer System. As part of that process, the CAC and its partners are looking to select a researcher or team of researchers to assess and review the efficacy and consistency of the training, development, and support of Learning Facilitators in soccer, baseball, and hockey and to what extent that training impacts the nationally standardized delivery of the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) in those sports.
