July 15, 2006 – In partnership, the Canadian Sport Centre Ontario, the National Coaching Institute and the Coaches Association of Ontario, are pleased to announce a new NCCP course subsidy that will directly benefit coaches wishing to continue their education and certification in all parts of the province. Ontario is putting its best efforts forward to prepare coaches for the upcoming Canada Games and increasing the number of eligible coaches for National team opportunities.
