Coaching In Ontario Schools (CIOS)

CIOS is a program developed by the Coaching Association of Canada and the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Association to give teacher-coaches and community volunteers the special skill-set they need to coach effectively in the school environment. The three and a half hour course is NCCP accredited, and participants will also receive an OFSAA Certificate of Completion.

The workshop is led by a NCCP trained Learning Facilitator and combines information required by coaches of beginner to intermediate athletes with skills they specifically need to work with student-athletes in the school environment.

The CIOS course is offered in both English and French.

CIOS Day will be September 11, 2018.
