Minimum Age for NCCP Workshops Policy
September 6, 2012
Coaches must be a minimum of 14 years of age on the first day of an ICC Workshop in order to participate in that course. Although it is not a requirement, CCBC strongly suggests, when possible, that coaches that are 14 or 15 years of age (U16) participate in workshops specifically targeting this age group in order to allow the learning facilitator to adapt his/her facilitation to the learning profile that characterizes U16 coaches. These coaches’ learning experience will be enhanced by an adapted facilitation style as opposed to trying to adapt to a class made up of more mature adults with a very different background.
Coaches must be a minimum of 16 years of age on the first day of a CCI - L2T (Dryland) Workshop to participate in that course.
The minimum age for designating a coach as NCCP “in training”, “trained”, and “certified” is 16 years of age. Therefore U16 coaches that have completed ICC and CC Workshops will be recognized on the CAC Database with the status indicator “Under 16”. Roll-over to the appropriate post-16 status indicator will happen automatically upon their 16th birthday.
