The Responsible Coaching Movement

The Responsible Coaching Movement is a system-wide movement that is being led and coordinated by the Coaching Association of Canada and the Canadian Centre for Ethics in Sport. The Responsible Coaching Movement is a call to action for all Parents, Club Associations, Sports Organizations and Coaches to implement realistic change to ensure the health and safety of athletes is maintained on and off the ice, field or pool.

    The Rule of Two stipulates that there will always be two screened and NCCP trained or certified coaches with an athlete especially a minor athlete. In the event that a second screened and NCCP Trained or certified coach is not available then a screened volunteer, parent or adult can be recruited.
