These skills allow children to enjoy sports and physical activities. Most importantly, with a firm grasp of the Fundamental Movement Skills a child may enjoy a long life of physical activity.
NCCP Make Ethical Decisions Workshop
Make Ethical Decisions
By successfully completing the Make Ethical Decisions (MED) training, coaches will be fully equipped to handle ethical situations with confidence and surety. MED training helps coaches identify the legal, ethical, and moral implications of difficult situations that present themselves in the world of team and individual sport.
MED training is a cornerstone of the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), and leaves coaches with no doubt as to what to do when the going gets tough.
Community Sport Delivery Program
Through support from the City of Kelowna, PacificSport Okanagan, and Valley First (a division of First West Credit Union), the Community Sport Delivery Program (CSDP) has been created to support the staffing needs (i.e. Head Coach, Administrator) of Local Sport Organizations and assist in the delivery of local sport participation and performance initiatives.
Another Successful Coaches Week in the Okanagan
Since 2007, British Columbia has celebrated Coaches Week every September to promote the recruitment, development and celebration of coaches in B.C. and the important role they play in sport across the province. Led by ViaSport BC, the event this year featured cost-friendly coach training opportunities, recognition events, contests and a celebration of the work done by coaches across all regions of British Columbia.
