CRC and NRL Extra Requirements

September 4, 2019 – this page has been moved to our Team Staff Requirements page. The link is active for the time being to properly redirect coaches but the information is not current. 

Coaches in the National Ringette League (NRL) and coaches who attend the Canadian Ringette Championship (CRC), have some additional requirements as set out by the NRL and Ringette Canada. This includes multi-sport Competition Development (Comp-Dev) modules and Respect in Sport.

CRC

Per a 2017 memo from Ringette Canada: “Following discussions with Ringette Canada stakeholders at the 2016 HP Summit, and through the Competition Review work, Ringette Canada will be encouraging coaches to complete professional development towards their maintenance of certification focused on the Competition – Development context. As such, starting next season, certified Competition – Introduction coaches attending CRC will be required to complete 1 Competition- Development multi-sport module during the season. This requirement will be annual and continuous until all Competition – Development multi-sport modules are complete.”

All coaches (head and asst.) who attend CRC will need to complete 1 Comp Dev module in the time between CRCs. For example, if CRC ended in April 2019, Coach X can take a course in May 2019 and it would count towards the 2020 CRC. If a coach takes a course in May 2019 but the team does NOT qualify for the 2020 CRC it will NOT count towards the 2021 CRC.

Exception: if a coach completed their CI certification during the 2019-2020 playing season, they do NOT have to do a Comp Dev module prior to the 2020 CRC.

All coaches must complete Respect in Sport for Activity Leaders. This does not have to be redone each season. If you’ve done it but it’s not showing up in your NCCP Locker profile, log into Respect Group and click the button that allows them to share the information with NCCP. It will also give you PD points.

Each TEAM at CRC needs to have a coach or trainer on the bench with First Aid or higher. See our Trainer Certification page for details.

NRL

NRL coaches are working towards Comp Dev certification, and for the 2019-2020 season must complete a multi-sport Comp Dev module before November 30, 2019. This does not apply to coaches who are already Comp Dev certified.

All coaches must complete Respect in Sport for Activity Leaders. This does not have to be redone each season. If you’ve done it but it’s not showing up in your NCCP Locker profile, log into Respect Group and click the button that allows them to share the information with NCCP. It will also give you PD points.

The Competition Development multi-sport modules are:

  • Managing Conflict
  • Leading Drug-Free Sport
  • Psychology of Performance
  • Prevention & Recovery
  • Manage a Sport Program
  • Coaching & Leading Effectively
  • Developing Athletic Abilities
  • Performance Planning
  • Advanced Practice Planning (to do AFTER Performance Planning)

See the schedule and registration links on the Alberta Sport Connection website.

As part of Coaches Week, September 21-29, 2019, the NCCP and Alberta Sport are offering Comp-Dev courses almost every day in Edmonton and Calgary. These courses are also offered a few times throughout the year so if this doesn’t work for you, check back with the Alberta Sport Connection website. It’s also possible for Ringette Alberta to schedule a course, provided there is enough interest.
