OCC to Offer NCCP Multisport Competition Development Modules in July



In a continued effort to service coaches in Ontario, and as a means to promote further education for our coaches – the Ontario Curling Council is supporting the development of Ontario coaches who have begun their Competition Development training or are intending to start the Competition Development training pathway.

In partnership with the Coaches Association of Ontario, the Ontario Curling Council will offer the four multisport modules required for Curling’s Competition Development Training Pathway.  These are the four Comp Dev Multisport Modules NOT integrated into the Competition Development Curling workshop.  All four modules will be offered July 20 – 22, 2018 at the Leaside Curling Club.    

The modules to be offered include:

Managing Conflict is a 5 hour workshop that helps coaches to:

  • Identify common sources of conflict in sport;
  • Determine which individuals or groups are most likely to find themselves in situations involving conflict;
  • Learn important skills that will help you prevent and solve conflict resulting from misinformation, miscommunication or misunderstanding;
  • Develop skills that will empower you to listen and speak effectively in conflict situations while maintaining positive relationships with athletes, parents, officials and other coaches

Psychology of Performance is a 7.5 hour workshop that helps coaches to:

  • Help athletes learn to manage distractions and use visualization techniques to prepare themselves technically and tactically for training and competition;
  • Learn how to work with athletes or teams to identify performance and process goals related to their ability to focus on performance;
  • Learn debriefing skills that can be used to help athletes assess their performance in both training and competition

Leading Drug Free Sport is a 4 hour workshop that helps coaches to:

  • Fully understand and explain the consequences of using banned substances in sport
  • Educate athletes about drug-testing protocols at major competitions
  • Encourage athletes to safeguard their sport values and take greater responsibility for their personal actions;

Coaching & Leading Effectively is a 10 hour workshop that helps coaches to:

  • Promote a positive image of sport, and model it to athletes and those supporting their performance
  • Deliver clear messages and explanations when communicating with athletes and their supporters;
  • Identify opportunities to interact with all athletes and use feedback to improve and correct performance  and behaviour

These multi-sport workshops are required modules for all coaches currently in the Competition Development stream of NCCP training but are available to coaches in other streams of the NCCP program as professional development.   Bursary funds may also be available for courses taken through the Coaches Association of Ontario.
