Mar 04, 2016

Coaches at the International Coaching SchoolThe Canadian Sport Institute Pacific is pleased to announce that registration is now open for the 2016 International Coaching School (ICS), which will be held at the Pacific Institute for Sport Excellence (PISE) in Victoria from May 28 – June 4, 2016.

The International Coaching School was designed to provides coaches with an opportunity to become world-class leaders by being able to complete National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) requirements, and/or professional development in high performance. There are two-streams available in the ICS; the Sport Performance Coaching Certificate (SPCC) and the High Performance Coach Advance (HPCA).

Sport Performance Coaching Certificate (SPCC) stream:

The SPCC runs from Saturday, May 28th to Friday, June 3rd and kicks off with the Managing Conflict module.

In this stream, coaches can take six NCCP modules at the Competition-Development level and two at the Competition-Introduction stage.

For those trying to earn NCCP certification, but unable to fit time into busy schedules, this event is ideal: The SPCC gives attendees the chance to complete eight multi-sport modules in just one week while saving money on registration and travel costs normally associated with achieving certification. Courses may be taken individually, but those who complete all eight at the ICS will earn a certificate in Sport Performance Coaching accredited by the BC Private Career Training Institute Agency.

High Performance Coach Advance (HPCA) stream:

Occurring at the end of the ICS, the HPCA is a two-day advance happening on Friday and Saturday, June 3rd-4th.

The overall theme of the 2016 HPCA is “Coaching Effectiveness” and will be led by experts in the field: Wade Gilbert – Editor-In-Chief, International Sport Coaching Journal; David Hill – Coaching Lead, Canadian Sport Institute Pacific; and Dr. Shaunna Taylor – Executive Director, PacificSport Okanagan.

Exclusive to national, provincial, Advanced Coaching Diploma alumni, or CIS/CCAA coaches, the HPCA is an opportunity to network, share best practices, and learn from some of the best in the profession. Attendance will be by invite-only, so those interested in attending must contact the event organizer at for approval.

Early bird prices are in effect until April 15th, but spots are limited.
