Coaching is the key in a skater learning quality skills and having fun at the same time. Skate Canada BC/YK Section has approximately 430 coaches working with skaters. They are all in different stages of NCCP certification. Finding a coach which your child works and responds well with is critical for their continuous progression. Coaches are passionate about the sport and love working with children and can greatly add to the maturing process.


Coaching Cards - Accreditation for Competitions

As many of you know, this year Skate Canada has decided not to produce Coaching Cards. Because of this, the Provincial Sections are required to implement their own way of monitoring accreditation at competitions.

Our BC/YK Section has decided to produce our own 2016/17 Coaching Cards which will include the below information. These cards will be required for Coaches standing at the Boards of all Region and Section Competitions.

- Photo of Coach
- Name
- NCCP Level
- SC#
- Year
- Screening Expiry
- First Aid Expiry
- Code of Ethics Expiry

The above valid information = Coach In Good Standing


Cost: $10.00

Includes a Lanyard and Pouch to wear around your neck.


Any Coaches requiring access to stand at the boards during a competition without this Coaching Card will be required to purchase a temporary competition pass for $25.00/ competition.
