The Coach's Tool Box
These are some resources we’ve collected for coaches to fill their tool boxes with. There will be more opportunities available in the coming weeks, so stay tuned by checking out our website and social media channels to see the latest!
Start Your Coach Certification Online -
Coaches can now complete the theory components of Community Coach workshops online through Google Classroom by completing the Clinic Registration form on your Member Organization’s RAMP registration platform.

Encourage Your Coaches to Take NCCP Training - Coaches Association of Saskatchewan (CAS)
is offering full refunds of workshop fees following the successful completion of training modules to anyone who is a CAS member. As well, Coaching Association of Canada
has many online multi-sport modules- encourage your coaches to take modules on nutrition, concussion awareness, planning a practice, making ethical decisions, and much more.
CanMNT EXCEL -
Members of the National EXCEL Program staff are providing knowledge and insights to the methodology employed by Men’s Excel Programme coaches in a series of webinars. Register now for the next sessions that will run at the beginning of May!
Respect in Sport (RiS) -
Now is a great time to complete Respect in Sport if your expiry date is coming in 2020 (in 2019, Sask Sport announced that RiS now has a 5 year expiry date. As such, anyone who has completed the RiS training in 2013 or earlier now has to re-certify). Since Respect Group regularly updates the content, there’s no doubt that you’ll learn something new about keeping sport participants safe.
