Professional Development

Effective Jan 1, 2014, Ringette Canada decided to comply with the CAC's (Coaches Association of Canada)  NCCP Professional Development policy.

Every coach will be required to complete PD (Professional Development) points to maintain their certification.  These are the minimum standards required every 5 years:
CSI Coaches - 10 points
CI Coaches - 20 points
Comp-Dev Coaches - 30 points

If you were trained prior to 2014, your 5 year clock started on Jan 1, 2014, thereby making your 5 year deadline on Dec 31, 2018.  
If you were trained 2014 and later, your 5 year clock will start the following Jan 1.  
If you move from ‘in training’ or ‘trained’ to a ‘certified’ status, a new five year cycle will begin.

There are numerous ways to earn PD points:

  • Active Coaching.  Maximum 5 points each renewal period.  Coaches need to self-declare each year here Active Coaching Declaration
  • NCCP Activity.  No minimum or maximum.  5 points per module.  Courses can be found here.
  • Non-NCCP Activity.  No maximum if sport-specific, maximum 50% of points if multi-sport. Approximately 1 point per hour.  Must be pre-approved by Ringette Canada.  Southern Region is currently looking into hosting some sport-specific courses in 2016.  
  • Coach Self-Directed Activity.  Maximum 3 points per renewal period.  Must be pre-approved by Ringette Canada.
  • Re-evaluation in Context.  100% of points required for the renewal period if the coaches chooses to be re-evaluated in their context (i.e. CI evaluation)

All Professional Development will be tracked in the CAC locker.  To find out how many PD points you currently have login into your locker
