NCCP Community Triathlon Coach is the starting point for triathlon coaches, and completion of Parts 1 and 2 is the primary requirement to run an affiliated club workout, clinic or camp sanctioned by Triathlon BC.
The triathlon coaching pathway has recently been updated, so this is an all-new course featuring new material and an updated practical component.
In order to receive certification at the NCCP Community Level, participants must complete two Clinic components; Part 1 (online) and Part 2 (in person). Part 2 includes the modules Coaching and Assessing Triathlon Skills and Coaching to Events and is delivered in a one-day, in-person course. In Part 2, coaches will lead the mini-activities they planned in Part 1. Coaches will need to complete both parts in order to be qualified in the NCCP system.
The Online Clinic is suited for those coaches looking to coach beginner, recreational, and age-group athletes, and those seeking certification in time for the 2022 BC Summer Games.
The outcomes of the NCCP Community Triathlon Coach program include:
- Making ethical decisions
- Provide support to athletes in training
- Plan a Practice
- Analyze performance
- Support the competitive experience
- Design a safe and effective training program
