Instruction / Coaching

The sport of golf has adopted a context approach to its instructor and coach development in order to best serve the participants in each stage of the Long-Term Player Development Guide. This approach ensures that the instructors and coaches working with participants in a particular context are trained specifically in the areas where these participants require expertise.

The PGA of Canada’s National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP), developed in collaboration with Golf Canada and the Coaching Association of Canada, features three distinct streams:

  1. Community Sport
  2. Instruction
  3. Competition

The “Competition” stream aligns with the Learn to Compete program.
