National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) Training
It is mandatory that all high level (level 3+ & median+) cheer coaches complete the following National Coaches Certification Program (NCCP) modules: 1) Making Ethical Decisions (MED); 2) Planning a Practice; and 3) Nutrition in order to be considered certified.
Making Ethical Decisions (MED)
Analyze a challenging situation and determine if it has moral, legal or ethical implications; and apply the NCCP Ethical Decision-Making Model to properly respond to each situation in a way that is consistent with the NCCP Code of Ethics.
Planning a Practice
Organize a well-structured practice plan with safe, age-appropriate activities you’ve designed to match the proficiency level of participants; identify potential risk factors that could impact the sport and practice activities; create an emergency action plan; and identify practice goals and design activities that offer the best training benefits for the athletic skills required in your sport.
