Special Olympics BC is now offering the NCCP Special Olympics Competition Sport Workshop both virtually and in person, to ensure that coaches around the province can complete this crucial training without the barriers associated with traveling.
This VIRTUAL session will take place on September 20-22, from 6 p.m. to 9:30 p.m. PT each evening.
Starting in September, SOBC will invoice Locals $65.00 per participant for this course.
It’s important to note that attendees must attend all days of the course. They are not able to attend day one on one date and day two a few months later. They must be consecutive days with the same course conductor(s).
All Special Olympics BC coaches (except for Active Start and FUNdamentals) are required to complete this certification within their first year of coaching Special Olympics athletes. The workshop helps equip coaches to empower athletes with intellectual disabilities. It covers various associated disabilities, basic delivery of sport skills, sport-specific and competition-based fitness, competition, and safety.
To prioritize accessibility, SOBC will continue to offer this course in-person as well as virtually. The content is the same both in person and online.
