The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) is a coach training and certification program for more than 60 sports in Canada.  The basketball program was developed by Canada Basketball in conjunction with the Coaching Association of Canada to improve the standard of coaching through education. 


The NCCP uses a competency-based approach where the coach is:
  •  trained in NCCP outcomes relevant to the athletes they are coaching
  •  evaluated by demonstrating coaching outcomes to a specific standard
