Q:What order do I take the Modules?

A:For Regional Level 1, Modules 1,2, and 3 can be taken in any order!

A: For Provincial Level 2, you must have Trained Status to be eligible to take Modules 4 and 5. Modules 4 and 5 can be taken in no particular order as well.

Q:Why are the NCCP clinics postedin Tournament Software?

A: For ease of registration. Coaches are not signing up for a tournament. Tournament Software is just a registration portal. Coaches will need to create a profile in Tournament Software if they have never played a tournament that used Tournament Software.

Q:Why does Provincial Level 2 being held in May 2017have a deadline of October 20th for registration?

A: If you see a registration deadline posted in the Tournament Software, it is ONLY for the clinics on the following weekend. Every 2016/2017 NCCP Clinic will have a registration deadline of a few days prior to the start date. Registration will close earlier if the clinic capacity reaches maximum. Badminton Ontario needs to close registration a few days prior in order to print the correct amount of manuals.

3)Coaching Q&A:

Q:Why has the BadOnt Coaching Cardfee increased from $10 to $25 for the 2016/2017 season?

A: The original $10 covers insurance, office admin time,and the cost of printing the card. Badminton Canada has now added a Coaching Card fee to all coaches collected through Badminton Ontario, which Badminton Ontario needs to recoup.

Trained coaches who areready to submit their Portfolio (Practice Plan / Emergency Action Plan), and take the on-court exam to obtain Certified Status shouldemail to have their name put on a waitlist. An on-court exam clinic will be scheduled once the waitlist gets filled.

5)Message from Badminton Canada regarding the NCCP Locker:

Message from Badminton Canada regarding NCCP transfer of credentials from the old NCCP to new NCC. Coaches with valid emails in their Locker account, and having accept notifications turned on, should have received this email notification below.


Dear Coach,

You are receiving this email because your current National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) qualifications in the Coaching Association of Canada’s NCCP database, called “The Locker”, may have been updated. NCCP programming for Badminton no longer includes Level 1, 2, or 3. These have been replaced by Competition, Instruction, and/or Community Sport stream workshops.

If you are a coach with Level 1, 2, or 3 Theory, Technical, or Practical components, you’ll now notice that you have been given credit for the equivalent program in the Competition, Instruction, and/or Community Sport coaching streams as proposed by Badminton Canada. These have been identified as “Transferred”on your Locker transcript.

All coaches whose Levels-NCCP qualifications are transferred to the new NCCP must completeMake Ethical Decisions(MED) within five years of the transfer taking effect. Coaches who are granted “Trained Transferred” status must complete, as a minimum, training in MED (Badminton Canada may require additional training as part of the coach pathway.) Coaches who are granted “Certified Transferred” status must complete the MED online evaluation.

Your Levels-NCCP credentials are still valid and recognized in the sport community. They will not expire or be removed from your transcript.

You are being awarded this equivalency so that the NCCP coaching partnership can better serve you and provide you with information and opportunities that are relevant to today’s coaching demands and in today’s coaching environment.

Recent changes in the NCCP include an emphasis on coaching ethics and recognizing professional development and ongoing training as essential for coaches. As a result of the transition to the new NCCP program, all coaches with a CERTIFIED status will be subject to Maintenance of Certification. In order for NCCP coaches to maintain their status, they will be required to obtain Professional Development (PD) points.All NCCP programs require certified coaches to complete PD on a five year cycle of January 1, 2017 to December 31, 2021 - any PD points acquired between September 28th, 2016 and January 1, 2017 will count in the 2017-2021 cycle.

Please visit the CAC’sMaintenance of Certification page, to find more information on professional development opportunities and points, as well as a list of frequently asked questions. Below you will find minimum professional development points requirements, as well as various activities that will grant you those points.

We strongly advise you to become familiar with your transcript and the Locker and regularly login (coach.caand go to The Locker – you will need your NCCP# and password), to see the progress you have made with NCCP and PD activities. The CAC has published aTransfer of Qualifications FAQ pageshould you have any questions about your new Competition, Instruction, or Community Sport qualifications. Should you have any further questions after having consulted the resource page, you may want to contact your national sport organization or the CAC’s Coach and Partner Services team at 613-235-5000
