The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) embodies a community of coaches who have achieved elite status in their careers by granting the official designation of Chartered Professional Coach (ChPC) and the status of Registered Coach to professionals in the field of coaching in Canada. Setting the bar for coaching in Canada, a chartered professional coach is an individual who represents the pinnacle of their profession and demonstrates a passionate commitment to coach education, training, certification, and standards of responsible coaching practices. Adhering to the highest standard of moral and ethical conduct, ChPCs and Registered Coaches represent competent, ethical, credible and educated leaders.
Registered coaches or ChPCs are recognized for their credibility and extensive experience in coaching; this is among some of the great benefits of being affiliated with the CAC. Other benefits include the athlete monitoring and sport data management platform offered through FITSTATS Technologies Inc.
The Alberta Sport Connection (Formally known as the Alberta, Sport, Recreation, Parks and Wildlife Foundation) has established a network of Alberta Sport Development Centres (ASDC) across the province.The main purpose of the ASD Cnetwork is to coordinate and enhance services available to Alberta’s emerging athletes and coaches. These regional centres provide services to athletes and coaches residing in rural and urban areas allowing athletes to develop and train at a high level without leaving home.
Sport Alberta was established in 1972 by and for the sport community (“a voice for the sport community, by the sport community”). Sport Alberta was reinvigorated on November 8, 2004 after a lengthy period of dormancy. At that time the objects of Sport Alberta were identified as the following:
- To promote amateur sport in the Province of Alberta.
- To set a forum for the exchange of members’ views.
- To act as a liaison with government agencies and to bring before the Provincial Government such recommendations as are approved by the Society.
- To correlate the efforts of all amateur sport governing bodies in Alberta in stimulating interest in amateur sport
