Coaches Helping Coaches Program

Monday, September, 28, 2015

Coaches Helping Coaches is a funded grassroots mentorship/ recruitment program from the Coaches Association of Ontario where long-time coaches are tasked with sharing their knowledge and experience with young coaches.

How it works:
A coach that is active and trained in the NCCP nominates a new coach to be mentored for one year. The new coach must be 16 years or older and have not already taken NCCP training. The experienced coach takes on the responsibility of mentoring the new coach.
