The NACP launches 2012 sports training calendar


Mr Denis addressing the coaches during yesterday’s opening ceremony

The centre’s 2012 programme was officially launched by the director for sports training and technical development in the National Sports Council (NSC) Bernard Denis and will start straight with the NCAP which is aimed at complementing the training conducted by national sports federations and associations to develop their coaches.

Mr Denis reminded the coaches that it is their responsibilities and not those of the NSC to prepare their teams as they are the ones directly involved with the athletes. He asked them to put to maximum use what they will be learning from the programme so that through sports, they can lend a hand in eliminating negative practices among the youths.

He also vowed the centre’s continuous support in giving future training to coaches and all those involved in sports management.

The NCAP also provides coaches with the scientific knowledge they would need to further their ability and skills in achieving objectives and goals set.

Split into three levels – I, II and III – totalling more than 100 hours of learning in a classroom environment, the NACP requires coaches to do assignments to complement the in-class learning. It will also provide them with the opportunity to share their experiences with the resource persons.

The first session of the programme covered the psychological aspect of coaching and was conducted by assistant psychologist at the National Council for Children Douglas Pierre.
