Coach Mentorship (NCMP)

The National Coach Mentorship Program (NCMP) was created by Hockey Canada as a result of the Coaching Association of Canada’s evaluation of the NCCP in 1995 and the Molson Open Ice Summit on player development in 1999. In both events, it was determined that the mentoring of coaches at all levels and specifically minor hockey is the key to the future growth of coaching in Canada. The ultimate outcome being improved athlete development through the establishment of a national coach mentoring program. As a result, at the 2000 Annual General Meeting, the Board of Hockey Canada approved unanimously the creation and implementation of the National Coach Mentorship Program (NCMP) to foster the future growth of coaching and player development in Canada

Mentoring is a relationship between a guide (mentor) and a coach, which enables the coach to become more successful in all aspects of his/her coaching skills. Mentors are experienced, knowledgable and trusted advisors, teachers, tutors, facilitators, etc that serve as a resource for coaches. Mentoring is a positive process which helps coaches with the required skills, knowledge and support to promote and sustain development within the coaching field.

As part of the NCMP a series of Instructional Stream and Continuing Education clinics have been developed to offer coaches professional development in many of the skill and tactical areas of the game. For more information on these clinics visit our Instructional Stream Clinic page and our Continuing Education Clinic page
