Boxing Canada National Coach Certification Program (NCCP)

The Boxing Canada plan for long term coaching development has been created in conjunction with the National Coach Certification Program (NCCP) and is based on Boxing Canada Long Term Athlete Development Model.


Boxing Canada recognizes the new NCCP approach of competency based education training to provide for more competent coaches by conducting training using modern adult education principles such as facilitated learning, self-directed modules, and the evaluation of both coaches and facilitators. In workshops or modules delivered in person, the overall teaching format will be based on mentorship and facilitation of learning by participants. Competency-based education and training is founded on the concept of learning by doing. Coaches develop and refine their skills when they are given the opportunity to apply the concepts. The workshops are designed to allow participants to practice the core skills required in each coaching context and to enable them to reflect on how they may apply what they have learned in their own programs.


The Boxing Canada Coaching Development Model provides four contexts for the development of boxing coaches:


  • Apprentice Coach context
  • Club Coach context
  • Level 3 (to be replaced by Competition Development in 2014)
  • Level 4 and 5
