The NCCP Sport Nutrition module helps coaches understand how to support athletes and their parents or caregivers in making effective nutrition choices. This NCCP module is available online through the Locker at a cost of $20.
Coaches Association of Saskatchewan
In Saskatchewan, the Coaches Association of Saskatchewan (CAS) provides NCCP training. These multi-sport training sessions are offered to all coaches in Saskatchewan. SCA coaches may choose to attend courses offered by the CAS.
SCA Scheduled Training
SCA coaches can attend one of the several training sessions set-up by the SCA. These sessions are only offered to SCA coaches, therefore you can expect the breakout sessions and conversations to be more relevant to cheerleading. These courses are at a reduced cost. Space may be limited.
