Required Coach Accreditation Registration

For the upcoming season coaches attending any Skate Ontario event or competitive event will require a Coach Accreditation card. Registration will be live on Monday, July 4, 2022 and will require you to show proof of your current Skate Canada coaching dashboard as well as an NCCP Number and most recent achieved NCCP Coaching status. This is for all disciplines and levels. Please be advised that moving forward previous coaching cards that were issued are not considered valid.

Acknowledging that on July 8th, 2022, there was an internet outage for Rogers users, we will extend the final registration day to July 14th at 11:59am. The cost is $25. Any registrations after this period will be subject to the full registration cost of $50.00.

For any questions, please reach out to Jarret Melanson, Administrator, NCCP Coaching.


Skate Ontario coaches are committed to excellence at all levels, inspiring, guiding and encouraging athletes to reach their full potential in a safe and positive training environment.

Skate Ontario coaches are members of our National Sport Organization, Skate Canada and are trained through the Coaching Association of Canada’s flagship National Coach Certification Program (NCCP). Aligned with the Long Term Athlete Development Model, our coaches receive professional and sport specific training to deliver appropriate level programming to their athletes.

Our coaches must fulfill the following requirements to be considered “in good-standing” and therefore eligible to coach in a Skate Canada club:

  • Valid first aid certificate
  • Valid background screening
  • Completion of the “Respect in Sport” Activity Leader training (new for the 2018/2019 season)
  • Compliance with the  “Maintenance of Certification” program which mandates and promotes on-going learning and development
  • Compliance with the Skate Canada Code of Conduct
