Intro to Coaching Course

Basketball Nova Scotia’s Introductory Coaching Course is a FREE coaching course available to all Basketball Nova Scotia Affiliate Clubs. It was created to bridge the gap between coaches in their first years of coaching before completing their NCCP FUNdamentals or Learn to Train Courses. Led by our Technical Director, Colter Simmonds, he will come to your club and deliver coaching fundamentals to get your coaches ready for the season!

This program is for coaches in their first couple years of coaching. It counts towards our minimum coach training as required by our Coach Screening Policy.

Community Coaches

All community head and assistant coaches are required to have a minimum coach education. This includes:

  1. Basketball Nova Scotia Free Intro Coaching course.
  2. Be either “In Training” or “Certified” in the appropriate NCCP for your age group.
  3. Attend an introductory coaching course (vetted by Basketball Nova Scotia’s Technical Director, Colter Simmonds) hosted at your local club.
