By successfully completing the Make Ethical Decisions workshop you will be fully equipped to handle virtually any ethical situation with confidence and surety. MED is one of the NCCP’s cornerstone workshops, and leaves coaches with no doubt as to what to do when the going gets tough. Upon completing the MED module you’ll be able to:

  • Analyze a challenging situation and determine if it has moral, legal or ethical implications;
  • Apply the NCCP Ethical Decision-Making Model to properly respond to each situation in a way that is consistent with the NCCP Code of Ethics
  • Participants will receive credit for the National Coaching Certification Program for this course. Please consult your Provincial Sport Organization to see if this course is part of your coaching pathway. If it is not, the credit earned through the course will still be valid for NCCP maintenance credits.

Canucks Autism Network Workshop

This workshop will provide an overview of autism spectrum disorders (ASD) and information about the types of challenges that individuals with ASD may experience in sport and recreation environments.  

A broad range of support strategies and coaching tips will be covered, including how to adapt communication, making coaching more concrete for visual learners, motivation strategies, rapport-building techniques, and group management strategies.  

Workshop attendees will learn to ‘see from the child’s shoes’ to problem solve and select a coaching strategy that will help all participants to succeed.  Strategies overviewed are appropriate for individuals aged 3-adult, across the autism spectrum and with other related challenges (e.g., learning disabilities, ADHD, FASD, etc.).  

This workshop is appropriate for community coaches, parks & recreation staff, physical education teachers, parents, teachers, and anyone else who is interested in learning more about supporting individuals with ASD.
