#CoachToolKit Video Series  

The CAC is expanding on its #CoachToolKit series, presented by TeamSnap. We will continue to offer the same coaching tips twice a month, but one of the two will now be offered in a video format! Every month, we will welcome a national team coach or coaching development expert into our virtual studio where they will share a coaching tip that has been very successful for them. Look for the first one on February 23rd

Coaches Plan - Expert Insight for Canada's Coaches 

Coaches plan is also being reformatted! The new format, with one article now being shared monthly rather than a quarterly magazine, will allow the CAC to keep its commitment to develop and share unique and/or partner-developed content to NCCP coaches at all levels, for all sports. Readers will continue to have access to content that is packed full of ideas to spark coaching creativity with resources to help plan, prepare, and deliver exceptional coaching.
