NCCP Course Calendar

Multi-Sport Training

The following multi-sport coaching modules will enhance your coaching repertoire and give you a solid foundation in building your coach education. These courses are applicable to all sports, and can be counted towards your maintenance of certification. You can complete the multi-sport modules in two ways; through an in-class session (see course schedule below) or through our online home study program.

Some sports have integrated the multi-sport modules within their sport specific components. Check with viaSport or your Provincial Sport Organization first to confirm if you require multi-sport training and what course(s) you need to take towards your coach education. Select a category below to learn more.

Descriptions of all the multi-sport modules viaSport offers are available here

Please note: Participants must be a minimum age of 14 to participate in multi-sport courses. Coaches under the age of 16 will be identified in the NCCP database as U16. Their training will be credited but certification will not be granted until they turn 16.
