NATIONAL — On February 18, the Aboriginal Sport Circle (ASC) announced the launch of an initiative to increase the number of Female Indigenous Coaches across Canada.
The ASC is offering NCCP Competition Introduction Training in Basketball, Hockey, Archery, Wrestling and Athletics in their 2022 Women In Coaching Program.
The general intake form has been released and is open to provide certification to female Indigenous coaches if they apply by March 11, 2022 at 5:00pm (EST).
The ASC is Canada’s national voice for Aboriginal sport, physical activity, and recreation bringing together the interests of First Nations, Inuit and Métis peoples.
Established in 1995, the ASC was created through a national consensus-building process, in response to the need for more accessible and equitable sport and recreation opportunities for Aboriginal peoples. This mandate has expanded to include physical activity as well as expand advocacy and program areas again, to include health, nutrition, physical education, wellness.
