Skate Canada Professional Coaches are trained and certified through the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). They are experts in skating development and for this reason and more, it is Skate Canada’s mandate as a sport organization to support the coaching profession by providing cutting-edge education opportunities and member benefits for personal and professional growth.
Going forward, the maintenance of NCCP certification policy governed by the Coaching Association of Canada will replace Skate Canada’s Continuous Education Program (CEP). Accordingly, all membership discounts tied to a coaches CEP status have been eliminated. Beginning with the 2016-2017 registration year, the Skate Canada Professional Coach fee package will be as follows:
Indemnity insurance similar to that introduced in the 2015-2016 season is included in the comprehensive insurance program. The maximum benefit under the program is $500/week for full disability and $250/week for partial disability. The period of coverage is up to 26 weeks for full disability and up to 13 weeks for partial disability, subject to a 7-day elimination period between the onset of a disability and the time you are eligible for benefits.
Your Skate Canada membership is annual and runs from September 1 through August 31 of the following year. A professional coach must be registered in good standing to be eligible to the above benefits.
