Once you have completed your NCCP training, the final step is to be evaluated by a qualified Coach Evaluator.  Don’t let the idea of “evaluation” turn you off; consider it more an opportunity for mentorship from and collaboration with a fellow coach!  A Coach Evaluator from your area will join you at practice to see you in action and discuss your progress and goals for future development.

If you have completed your NCCP training in the last 12 months and are looking to complete your evaluation, you may be eligible for a $50 discount on your evaluation fee.  Please contact Andrea Miller for a discount code.


For more information about the process please contact Sport Development Manager, Andrea Miller or 416-759-8405.

Get ahead of the new coach certification policy implementation on April 1, 2019 by getting certified now.  If you are an experienced coach and feel ready for evaluation, please review the RCA Coach Challenge Process 2018 document.  Once you have submitted your application form, a group of Master Coach Developers will review it and determine if you are ready to proceed with the challenge.
