Development Coach

The Development Coach program is the principal entry point for most coaches in the volleyball NCCP system. The program has four distinct steps required for certification. Completion of each step also provides the coach with one of three coaching "designations": In Training, Trained, or Certified.

Step 1 – In Training: successful completion of Development Coach e-modules (approximately 6-8 hours; pre-requisite to the In-Person Workshop) 
These e-modules are designed to provide all the necessary information a volleyball coach will need prior to the In-Person Workshop. The content of the modules will be applied and practiced in the Workshops. To begin the e-modules click here.
Step 2 - In Training: successful completion of the Development Coach Volleyball Workshop 
This course has been designed to introduce the game of volleyball and basic coaching concepts to new coaches. Coaches will be expected to participate in a series of learning experiences designed to assist them in improving their volleyball coaching abilities and to have those coaching abilities assessed throughout the course.  Successful completion of the Development Coach e-modules is required in order to register for a Development Coach Volleyball Workshop. 
Step 3 - Trained: successful completion of Competition: Multi-Sport Modules
Coaches must undertake education and training in three multi-sport modules.
These modules provide education and training in areas relevant to coaches in all sports. To enroll in the Competition - Introduction: Multi-Sport Modules, contact the Sport North Federation.
