The National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) gives coaches the training and tools they need to succeed – in coaching and in life.

All LUSA Coaches are required to carry coaching certification appropriate to the age group(s) they are responsible for; LUSA provides ongoing FREE age group specific training across the year as well as other development courses available, The NCCP is an area for all coaches for all sports in Canada to have their credentials listed and applied to you as a coach. If you’ve been a coach for another soccer team or another sport you may already have a NCCP# and LUSA will need that information to either check you’re already certified or to apply detail of the training courses completed.
