Evaluation Requirements

Training vs. Certification

The Community Sport Stream consisting of “Club Coach:  Youth” and “Club Coach” programs consist of training only.  At the completion of these workshops, coaches will be “Trained.”  There is no evaluation component to these programs.

The Competition Stream consisting of “Competition Coach” and “Competition Development” consist of training and evaluation(s).  Upon successful completion of evaluation(s) coaches in the competition stream will be “Certified.”  While training is always recommended, a “challenge” process does exist for evaluations.
