The minimum age for the designation for a coach as NCCP Certified is 16 years of age.

Anyone younger than 16 and older than 14 may enrol in and complete NCCP or NCCP qualifying development opportunities, where a national sport organization:

  • Plans to offer NCCP or NCCP qualifying development opportunities to those under 16.
  • Agrees to provide these opportunities within the framework of the NCCP.
  • Agrees to maintain the records on the NCCP database.

The provincial/territorial government or designated delivery agency may authorize enrolment in multi-sport modules.

Anyone younger than 16 and older than 14 will be designated on the CAC database with an underage status indicator.
