The CanPowerSkate pathway follows the same structure as other Skate Canada NCCP pathways. With In-training, Trained, and Certified steps, coaches are supported in both program delivery and coach development. All coach achievements in CanPowerSkate will be recorded and tracked in the Locker.
As Skate Canada strategically plans for the next quadrennial, coaches delivering the CanPowerSkate program beyond September 1, 2022, must have a status in the NCCP CanPowerSkate pathway or challenge the NCCP CanPowerSkate evaluation for equivalency.
Opportunity for existing CanPowerSkate Coaches to transition to the NCCP
- Complete the CanPowerSkate Program Update eLearning Module
- Select one of the following options
- Challenge NCCP Evaluation: Coaches who can show proof of completion of the old CanPowerSkate Course in addition to the CanPowerSkate Program Update eLearning Module are eligible to challenge the NCCP Certification of the new CanPowerSkate Pathway by completing the Evaluation Portfolio by September 1, 2022. To activate this option, enroll in the CanPowerSkate Coach Certified Evaluation Portfolio through the eLearning site. Coaches will be assigned a coach evaluator who will review all the requirements during a pre-brief.
- CanPowerSkate NCCP Pathway: Coaches may attend an NCCP CanPowerSkate course to earn an In-training status and complete the necessary steps for Trained and Certified status within 3-years of attending the In-Training course. Please watch for a course being offered in your Section.
