2017 Canada Summer Games

Softball Canada and Softball Alberta are extremely pleased to announce that the Canada Games Council has selected both men’s and women’s softball for the 2017 Canada Summer Games program. The sport of softball has been part of the Canada Summer Games since 1969, but the men’s competition was not selected for the 2009 and 2013 Games. Thus, the men’s competition will return to the program in 2017.

Attention Coaches:

Please note that the following fees for NCCP online evaluations will be implemented on April 1, 2014.

Make Ethical Decisions (all streams):        $85.00
Managing Conflict:                                    $85.00
Leading Drug-free Sport:                          $85.00

As a reminder, here are some points of clarification related to these fees (as originally sent out in August 2013):

Coaches who have completed the corresponding multi-sport module training will not have to pay for the online evaluation for that module and will have unlimited attempts at passing the evaluation;

Coaches who have completed the corresponding module component as part of an integrated sport program, will not have to pay for the online evaluation for that module and will also have unlimited attempts at passing the evaluation;

This Board directive and the related fees only apply to those coaches who choose to go directly to the online evaluation without completing the training in advance; 

This Board directive is consistent with valuing the high-quality NCCP training provided by all of our partners across the country, and to ensure that all coaches in the system are contributing to the ongoing development and success of the NCCP;

This Board directive is also consistent with what is being implemented by the sports when a coach demonstrates prior learning and goes directly to the sport specific evaluation components and are charged a fee;

As with all revenue collected, these fees will be re-invested into the continued development and on-going maintenance of the NCCP in the best interest of all partners.

A series of FAQs has been created and is now posted to coach.ca here.
