NCCP Requirements


Coaches must obtain both an NCCP number and a GO Membership number for the season in which the course(s) occur.

Coaches must be at least 15 years of age by the start of the Foundations Introduction course in order to register for the courses.

Coaches must be at least 16 years of age to register for any Level 2 (+) and/or Competition Stream course.

It is the sole responsibility of the individual coach to ensure that they meet all of the requirements to register and attend the course. Coaches who do not meet the requirements and course prerequisites will not receive course completion credit - NO EXCEPTIONS.

Late registrations (within 5 business days of the course start date) may not be on the course list and likely will not receive the course materials at the course. If the coach does not receive a manual, they will be required to email the Education Program Manager with their name, full mailing address, phone number and the course name, location and date(s).

Proof of payment should be presented to the course Learning Facilitator for all late registrations.


Refund and Course Transfer Policy


Refund requests must be formally submitted via email to the Education Program Manager a minimum of 7 days prior to the start of the course, and should include a detailed explanation as to why the coach can no longer attend (documentation may be requested).

Course transfers may be requested prior to the start of any NCCP course by emailing the Education Program Manager.

If a coach is unable to attend a course they are registered for, a minimum of 5 business days notice must be provided to Gymnastics Ontario. Failure to provide adequate notice for course cancellation will result in a forfeiture of the course fee and ineligibility for a course transfer. 

Coaches that have an existing credit on their account must contact the Education Program Manager in order to be transferred into a future course. Course credits issued to a coach will expire exactly 1 year following the course end date. Duplicate registrations for the same course will not be refunded. Course transfers will not be completed without adequate documentation for courses that have already passed. 

Please note that course registration is not transferable between coaching accounts. Course credits must be used by coaching profile it is assigned to.
