Competition Coach (2-day or approx. 14 hours – $184.80 including taxes) Prepares coaches to work with intermediate and competitive level athletes. This is a streamlined workshop with the technical and theory being offered in one weekend (or 2 days) by Curl BC Learning Facilitators. No prerequisite is required. It is recommended that you have previous coaching experience or are a former athlete in the sport of curling. Learn about:
- teaching and learning strategies, tactics, delivery & brushing skills
- making ethical decisions
- emergency action plans
- skill analysis & drills to correct faults
- practice planning
- competition planning
The steps towards full certification of Competition Coach are as follows:
In addition to the 2-day Competition Coach workshop registrants will be required to complete the Making Ethical Decision Course followed by the online Making Ethical Decisions module (test) through the Coaches Association of Canada (CAC). The MED course can be completed through online homestudy, via a partner or multi-sport organization or local college or at a Curl BC Competition Coach workshop.
Competition Coach workshop registrants must also be evaluated while they lead a one hour on-ice practice, having prepared and submitted the necessary paperwork.

Competition Coach On-Ice Evaluation
If your club or region has coaches who completed their Competition Coach training through a workshop but need to complete their certification by completing an on-ice practice evaluation, consider booking an “evaluation day” where Curl BC will have an evaluator on-site to evaluate and certify those coaches. As there is preparation required by coaches for the on ice evaluation, contact Elisabeth Walker-Young for more information.Note: Individual coaches may also book evaluations directly through Elisabeth. Once fully certified, this coach will be eligible to coach at playdowns, provincials, nationals & at the BC Winter Games.
