The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), launched in 1974. Since that time, it has grown to be considered a world leader in coach education. No matter what level or type of coach you are, the Competition Development (Comp.Dev.) modules will make you a better coach.
The module “Managing Conflict” module is a 4.5 hour course that will allow you to:
- Identify common sources of conflict in sport;
- Determine which individuals or groups are most likely to find themselves in situations involving conflict;
- Learn important skills that will help you prevent and solve conflict resulting from misinformation, miscommunication or misunderstanding; and
- Develop skills that will empower you to listen and speak effectively in conflict situations while maintaining positive relationships with athletes, parents, officials and other coaches.
The Lethbridge Sport Council, in partnership with the Alberta Sport Development Centre Southwest, will be offering this module on Saturday December 3rd, from 8:00 AM – 12:30 PM in the Lethbridge Sport Council Community Room located upstairs in Nicholas Sheran Ice Centre. The Cost is just $75.

3 reasons you should register:
- Be a better coach – One of the best ways to become a better coach (or a better anything) is to continue to develop your skills. As a coach, there is a good chance you spent years in your sport, learning about all the technical details and nuances of your sport. As a coach, you know there is more to it than that, and those are the skills you can learn from NCCP modules. Learning never stops.
- Reap the benefits of training locally – All too often in Southern Alberta, accessing opportunities means travel to Calgary or Edmonton. Unfortunately, this drives up the cost significantly, as you will have to pay for fuel, hotels, meals, and often have to take time off of work. This is an opportunity to reap the benefits without any of the added cost. In fact, with this particular course, you can spend the morning learning and networking with other coaches, and still be home in time for a Costco run with the family!
- Managing Conflict is an invaluable skill – No matter what sport you coach, there will be conflict. If you are prepared to handle the situations that arise, you will be able to get back to doing what you really enjoy, coaching. The skills you learn in this course could also be transferable to other facets of life.
- Learn from the best – All NCCP courses are instructed by trained, certified learning facilitators. The December 3rd course will be led by Ozzie Sawicki.
