Competition Stream

Competition Stream Coach

There are three levels of workshops for competition coaches that reflect the stages of athlete development: Introduction, Introduction – Advanced and Development.

  • The Competition – Introduction workshop is a 19-hour course, scheduled over three days with on- and off-court teachings. There is no prerequisite and can be considered your entry level competition course. Athletes will be in the Learn to Train stage of the LTAD and range in age from 8-11 for females, 9-12 for males and late entry +1-2 years. The ratio of Athletes to Coach Candidates is 4:1 and Coach Candidates to Learning Facilitators is 4:1.
  • The Competition – Introduction Advanced workshop is a 22-hour course, scheduled over three to four days with on- and off-court teachings. Competition – Introduction is the pre-requisite course. Athletes will be in the Train to Train stage of LTAD and range in age from 11-15 for females, 12-16 for males and late entry +2-5 years. The ratio of Athletes to Coach Candidates is 4:1 and Coach Candidates to Learning Facilitators is 4:1.
  • The Competition – Development is a 36 to 42-hour course, scheduled over six days with on- and off-court teachings. Wheelchair Basketball Canada requires that coach candidates have obtained certification in Competition – Introduction and Competition -Introduction Advanced (or the old NCCP equivalencies) as a pre-requisite.
