NCCP Coaching Athletes with a Disability
Coaching Association of Canada
Many coaches who have never worked with athletes with a disability feel that, to be effective, they need highly specialized skills, knowledge, or training. This is a misperception. In fact, most coaches who work with athletes with a disability soon discover that coaching these participants is fundamentally no different than coaching any other athlete. The challenge is to truly understand the person, to focus on their abilities, and to see what they can achieve.
The module is delivered via on-demand eLearning in the Locker at a cost of $15.
