“Our upcoming Provincial Conference will address this and provide coaches a great opportunity to learn and network. Coaches attending our Provincial Conference on April 20-21 can learn about and be put on the path towards meeting those minimum standards. Coaches will also have the opportunity to update and achieve the new standards as set out by the NCCP.”
