Aboriginal Coaches Module

To educate Indigenous people about the value of and to encourage their participation in the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), the ASC embarked on a multi-year consultative process to develop training material for Indigenous coaches.

The result of this process was the launch of the Aboriginal Coaching Modules (ACM) in 2003. The ACM responded directly to the identified need for a national coach training curriculum that reflects the uniqueness of Indigenous culture, values and lifestyles. Originally designed for coaches of First Nation, Métis and Inuit heritage, the program has been expanded to include non-Indigenous coaches working within Indigenous communities and with Indigenous people.

Designed to complement the NCCP certification process, the ACM is a professional development training tool for all coaches who coach Indigenous athletes.

Modules Include:

Module 1: Holistic Approach to Coaching

Module 2: Dealing with Racism in Sport

Module 3: Individual and Community Health and Wellness

Date: June 20

Time: 9:00am - 5:00pm

Location: Langley Events Centre

Cost: $20


Diversity and Inclusion Training

Katie Miyazaki has a Master of Public Health degree, but her real knowledge comes in the sporting realm. She has been involved in a variety of sports as an athlete, coach, and administrator on all levels and in varying capacities. Joining the Wheelchair Basketball world in 2013 really opened her eyes to Diversity and Inclusion and sparked an interest in learning more and finding ways to make a difference. It was through sport that Katie found her voice to speak out and advocate for what she feels is needed and necessary.

Katie loves to learn and continues to reflect on her own intersectionality and how it influences her personal experiences. She also loves to hear other people’s stories and to create opportunities for people to find their passion and to gain a sense of belonging. She believes sport is an excellent vehicle for building skills like confidence and belonging but knows that there is still so much work that needs to be done in order to ensure sport is accessible and welcoming to all.

Where: Langley Events Centre

When: June 21

Time: 10:00am - 12:00pm

Cost: $20
