Professional Development

The Coaching Association of Canada and Lacrosse Canada recognize the value of having certified NCCP coaches that are engaged in Professional Development programs which reinforce the values of lifelong learning and sharing amongst the coaching community.

Your Professional Development activities and points are tracked on your transcript in The Locker. As part of your ongoing commitment to coaching, all certified coaches will be required to maintain their certification by accumulating PD points over a set time frame. Click on the “Professional Development” button (on the right) for details about professional development.

Only coaches who are certified in competitive introduction or higher are required to accumulate professional development points to maintain their certification. Coaches must accumulate 20 points in each 5-year PD cycle. The 5-year cycle begins as soon as a coach becomes certified in competitive introduction; for coaches who were certified prior to 2014, the 5-year PD cycle began on January 1, 2014 and will expire on December 31, 2018. For more information on the lacrosse-specific policy on maintenance of certification, please reference section 22 of the CLA operations manual, particularly policy 22.2.
