OTTAWA (January 15, 2013) – The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC), as the leader of coach education and training in Canada, is pleased to announce that 49 outstanding individuals who have been instrumental in the development and delivery of the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) over the last four decades will be awarded the Queen Elizabeth II Diamond Jubilee Medal. 

The NCCP is recognized across all levels of government as the standard in coach training and certification, and we are very excited to honour these individuals who have made that level of achievement possible,” said John Bales, CEO of the CAC. “The quality of the program can be seen in over a million NCCP trained and certified coaches across the country, and in the outstanding athletes they coach every day.”
