Sport is Athlete centered and Coach driven!
In order to support our coaches, Athletics Canada is renewing its commitment to coaching education. From grassroots to high performances programs, we aim to increase the number of certified coaches at every level to improve exposure to our great sport.
In partnership with the Coaching Association of Canada we are updating our services in order to provide accessible and varied development opportunities that fit the needs of our coaches, regardless of their level of participation.
Great coaches are a key component in the development and continued support of our athletes. They play a major role in the promotion of a healthy lifestyle.
Athletics Canada supports the provincial branches in the delivery of the Run, Jump, Throw, Wheel programs in the Community stream, as well as the Sport Coach And Club Coach courses in the Competition Introduction stream. In the Spring 2017, we will be launching our newly updated Performance Coach course and we will start working on the Performance Coach Advanced Gradation certification. Performance Coach and the Advanced Gradation are both in the Competition Development stream.
