Course description:

The ACM is a professional development training tool for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal coaches who coach Aboriginal athletes, as they become certified through the NCCP. The material in the ACM has been developed to meet the following objectives:

  • Provide culturally relevant training workshops to Aboriginal coaches and community sport leaders;
  • Elevate the capacity of Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal coaches to coach Aboriginal athletes;
  • Improve the quality of the sport experience for Aboriginal athletes;
  • Improve the coach’s understanding of, and ability to apply, Aboriginal culture to sport and to coaching techniques and tactics;
  • Allow Aboriginal communities greater accessibility to the NCCP;
  • Increase the number of NCCP certified Aboriginal coaches;
  • Make the wisdom of Aboriginal culture available to both Aboriginal and mainstream sport.
