Trained coaches are a key factor towards quality sport experiences. Additionally, participating in coach education can significantly increase a coach’s confidence in their leadership abilities. To alleviate costs, funding opportunities are currently available to support coach education in various regions across the province:
Northern BC Coaching and Officiating Development Fund
The Northern BC Coaching and Officiating Development Fund is a localized initiative, supported in part by the Northern Sport Strategy, created to provide support for coaching and officiating development leading up to the 2015 Canada Winter Games and beyond. Recipients of this grant can use the funding to reduce the cost of their training and/or certification courses, in turn helping to increase accessibility to coaching and officiating development.
Community groups, provincial sport organizations and individuals located within Zones 7 and 8 can apply.
