We are committed to helping our coaches continually expand their existing knowledge and experience. The primary opportunity for education is certification within the Coaching Association of Canada’s National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). The courses we run are accredited by the NCCP and upon completion of a course, coaches are submitted into the Coaching Association of Canada’s central database which we administrate for field hockey coaches in BC. Please follow these links for more information about the NCCP and to see a list of certification courses offered through FHBC.
In order to make coach education efficient and optimize its effectiveness, our Coach Education pathway is aligned to all pillars of FHBC’s Long Term Field Hockey Development system. This system is structured using the framework of Sport for Life’s Long Term Athlete Development plan, using stages of athletic development as the framework around which the core content of coaching courses is structured.
In addition to formal NCCP Coach Education opportunities, we also offer ongoing, informal educational opportunities, mentorship and professional development support for all coaches working within our Regional and Provincial programs. All coaches working within our programs are highly skilled and experienced coaches. All of them are qualified coaches.
For coaches wishing to working within the system and support the best BC athletes, please check out our opportunities and the Coaching Rates, which are linked to qualification and experience.
