National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP)
Skate BC/Yukon coaches follow the guildlines of our National Organization, Skate Canada. Our coaches are teachers, mentors and role models committed to teaching individual development and life skills to help each skater realize his/her personal best – on and off the ice. All Skate Canada coaches are professionals who are trained and certified through Skate Canada’s National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). All Skate Canada professional coaches must be registered coaching members in good standing.
