ACA-CSC Coach Education Reference Material
Alpine Canada Coach Education (ACA-CSC) in partnership with the territories and provinces develops our Canadian ski coaches by providing coach education, certification and professional development opportunities. Our coach certification program is part of the Coaching Association of Canada’s National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). As a partner of the Coaching Association of Canada, Canadian ski coaches must meet or exceed minimum competency requirements to be recognized as trained or certified. All ACA-CSC member coaches focus on and uphold the NCCP coaching core competencies of valuing, leading, interacting with people, problem-solving and critical thinking.
