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
