ABORIGINAL COACHING MODULE (ACM) COURSE
The Aboriginal Coaching Modules (ACM) is a professional development training tool for Aboriginal and non-Aboriginal coaches who coach Aboriginal athletes, as they become certified through the NCCP.
The ACM responds to the need for a national training curriculum with content that reflects the uniqueness of Aboriginal cultures, values, and lifestyles. The material in the ACM is rolled out in 3 modules:
Module 1 – Holistic Approach to Coaching
Module 2 – Dealing with Racism in Sport
Module 3 – Individual and Community Health and Wellness
Applications due by 4PM, Wednesday, September 6, 2017
