Competition Development Coach Training & Certification

The Competition Development workshop is a comprehensive course that is designed to assist coaches in taking their teams to the next level of competitive play provincially, nationally, or internationally. The workshop encompasses planning, strategy, analysis and program management to better your team’s performance. It is recommended that coaches are working with teams that are “Training to Compete.”

  • Prerequisites: Coaches must be Competition Coach or Level 2 certified
  • Competition Development has replaced the previous Level 3 Technical.

Competition Development is the replacement to the Level 3 Certification program. It is a program that is administered and delivered by the Curling Canada with assistance from its Member Associations (Curl BC).

During this training coaches will learn:

– Current Technical Skills
– How to Analyze Technical and Tactical Performance
– Performance Planning
– Program Management
– Advanced Strategy
– Advanced Practice Planning
– Prevention and Recovery (Integrated Multisport Module)
– Developing Athletic Abilities (Integrated Multisport Module)

The program will take approximately 14 months to complete, as it requires writing, implementing, executing and debriefing an
annual plan.

In addition to the annual plan portfolio, two observation evaluations (a practice and a competitive environment) must be completed. Coaches will need to complete the Competition Development Make Ethical Decision Online Evaluation, and will need to complete the four remaining competition development multisport modules:

  • Managing Conflict
  • Coaching and Leading Effectively
  • Psychology of Performance
  • Leading Drug Free Sport.

Workshop dates and locations are set through Curling Canada
