Celebrate National Coaches Week 2020 with free coach education

Saturday September 19 marks the beginning of the sixth annual National Coaches Week, a week-long celebration (September 19 to 27, 2020) of the positive impact coaches have on athletes and communities across Canada.

In celebration of National Coaches Week, Rowing Canada Aviron (RCA) is offering the RCA Rowing Essentials e-module for free (regularly $20). This e-module was developed by RCA and equips coaches with important technical and safety knowledge. It can be accessed via the eLearning page in the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) Locker.

In addition, the CAC is offering free access to their NCCP Making Head Way in Sport, NCCP Coaching Athletes with a Disability, NCCP Coach Initiation in Sport, and NCCP Emergency Action Plan e-modules during National Coaches Week. These can also all be accessed via the eLearning page in the CAC Locker.

All coaches are required to complete the RCA Rowing Essentials e-module by March 2021 as part of RCA’s ‘Every Coach Certified’ initiative. Coaches new to the NCCP as of April 2019 are also required to complete the NCCP Coach Initiation in Sport e-module by March 2021.

Coaches who complete one or both of the RCA Rowing Essentials and NCCP Coach Initiation in Sport e-modules during National Coaches Week will be entered into a draw to win an RCA Identity Hoodie.
