Sport Specific Coaching Courses

The National Coaching Certification Program Special Olympics Canada coach education program provides workshops for coaches in both the community and competition contexts. These workshops provide the Special Olympics coach with knowledge to coach a Special Olympics athlete.

Within the Competition context, the Special Olympics coach must also participate in the sport-specific workshop. These sport-specific workshops provide the Special Olympics coach with what they need to know and be able to do in order to coach the technical aspects of the sport.

For information on coach development opportunities within the province of Alberta, visit the Alberta Sport Coach Development Page

In order to obtain your sport-specific coach requirements, please contact the specific provincial sport organization:
