The online E-learning course must be completed before in-person training. The Community Sport Training is a 1 day clinic that is required for anyone coaching athletes under the age of 14. The community novice coach has 6 modules:

  • Understanding the game
  • Make ethical decisions
  • Safety

Mandatory E-learning Course

The Safe Contact Workshops will be $50 for members ($25 Virtual Members Discount) and $150 for non-members.

An integral part of Football Canada’s National Coaching Certification Program, Safe Contact teaches safe tackling and blocking techniques along with safety education and awareness. Every football player needs to be able to perform the football fundamentals taught in Safe Contact, regardless of what position they play on the field. Safe Contact is a 1 day clinic in class and on-field that is required for all coaches.

As a reminder, per Football Canada, NCCP Safe Contact certification is good for five years. After this five year period a coach will need recertification.
