Ottawa - The Canada Games Council (CGC), in collaboration with the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC), is proud to launch a new eLearning module to support the professional development of current and prospective coaches at the Canada Games.
For the majority of coaches, the Canada Games will be their first multi-sport Games experience of their careers. The new Canada Games eLearning module educates coaches about the dynamics of coaching at multi-sport events and is available for free to all coaches on The Locker.
Coaches who complete the module will develop the skills and confidence necessary to navigate the multi-Games experience while optimizing the performance of their athletes or teams. They will also receive professional development points towards the maintenance of their NCCP certification.
The Canada Games spark greatness in the next generation of athletes and leaders on and off the field of play. Held once every two years, alternating between winter and summer, the Canada Games are the largest multi-sport event in the country for Canadian amateur athletes.
The Games are inclusive and bring together more than 2,000 able-bodied athletes and athletes with physical and intellectual disabilities to compete on the national stage in more than 30 different sports.
This eLearning module was completed with the support of the Government of Canada.
About the Canada Games Council
The Canada Games Council, a private, non-profit organization, is the governing body for the Canada Games. Held once every two years, alternating between winter and summer, the Canada Games represent the highest level of national competition for up and coming Canadian athletes. The Games have been hosted in every province at least once since their inception in Quebec City during Canada’s Centennial in 1967. The Games are proud of their contribution to Canada’s sport development system, in addition to their lasting legacy of sport facilities, community pride and national unity. The organization of the Canada Games is made possible through the tireless dedication of local Host Societies and the contribution and support of the federal, provincial/territorial and host municipal governments.
The office is located in Ottawa, Ontario, on the traditional territory of the Algonquin Anishinabek People.
