Equestrian Canada – Ottawa, ON, May 7, 2018 – Equestrian Canada (EC) is accepting applications from individuals interested in volunteering on EC’s new National Coaching Technical Committee (NCTC) until the deadline of May 18, 2018.

About the NCTC
A new operational committee of EC, the NCTC will work collaboratively with EC, the Provincial and Territorial Sport Organizations (PTSOs), and the EC National Coaching Operations Committee (NCOC). The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) will have an advisory role on the committee to ensure national sporting organization best practices are incorporated into the equestrian National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) stream.

The NCTC will be tasked with reviewing and further developing coaching certification and athlete development pathways for each equestrian discipline, from the grassroots through to the high performance level.

Specific areas of concentration will include:

  • Reviewing and refining existing coaching and athlete development programs for the equestrian community.
  • Developing new coaching and athlete development education resources and programs.
  • Creating initiatives and content that is relevant, accurate, appropriate and effective in meeting the growth of coaching and athlete development today, and into the future.
