NCCP Levels 3-5
NCCP Level 3
NCCP Level 3 consists of three components: Theory (Competition Development), Technical and Practical. Only coaches who are fully certified (Theory, Technical and Practical Levels 1 and 2) are invited to participate in Level 3 courses. Coaches will be required to complete Level 3 Theory and Technical and then will be tested by a Level 3 Master Course Conductor for the Practical component.
The Theory component must be taken through the Coaches Association of BC. It can be taken as a course or via Homestudy. Please visit the Coaches BC Website for schedule and contact information.
The Manitoba Badminton Association is offering the NCCP Technical Level 3 Course August 8-10, 2014. For more information and to apply, visit their website.
NCCP Levels 4 and 5
NCCP Levels 4 and 5 consist of an applied study program of 20 tasks (customized by Badminton Canada) to be taken through the National Coaches Institute (NCI). To receive Level 4 certification a coach must complete 12 tasks. The remaining 8 tasks are completed for Level 5 certification.
Level 3 certification, experience in high-performance sport and approval from Badminton Canada are prerequisites for entry to Levels 4 and 5. A physical education degree is also highly recommended.
