GO Membership

To register for a Gymnastics Ontario NCCP course, you must first be a registered member of Gymnastics Ontario. Member clubs are responsible for registering their coaches with Gymnastics Ontario. Your club administrator should be able to provide you with your GO Membership number.

GO Membership must be under a Coach or CIT role in order to successfully register for any NCCP course through Gymnastics Ontario.

If you are not affiliated with a club, please email a completed copy of the unattached coach form to membership@gymnasticsontario.ca or send via fax (647) 344-4816

The unattached coach form can be downloaded from the GO website under the Forms Tab.

Please note the new season starts on July 1st of every year. You or your club administrator will be required to update your GO Membership in order to sign up for any NCCP courses falling on or after July 1st. 

 

The Locker - How to Obtain an NCCP Number

Coaches must create an account for themselves in the Locker prior to registration in their first NCCP course. This NCCP number stays consistent throughout their coaching career.

Certification Maintenance & Professional Development points will be tracked in ‘The Locker’.

Head coaches and administrators have access to the Locker’s Public Transcript.

The Locker "How-to" Guide can help first time coaches to register in the Locker and established coaches to locate an existing NCCP number.

How to Access Digital Coach ID on Uplifter

Either a club or coach can access a coach’s digital Coach ID on Uplifter. The digital Coach ID is only available to competitive coaches who are a minimum of Competition 1 Trained or Level 2 certified and are requiring access to a Gymnastics Ontario competition floor. The application form must have been completed and you need to have received an email confirming your digital Coach ID is ready. To access your digital Coach ID, it is a two-step process.

First, you need to Attach the Coach’s Participant Profile

For Individual accounts, if you have already registered yourself as a coach for an Uplifter course, your profile should already be attached. You can now proceed to the next step, Accessing the digital Coach ID.

For club accounts, if you registered the coach, the coach’s profile should already be attached. You can now proceed to the next step, Accessing the digital Coach ID.

If you haven’t attached the coach’s participant profile:

  1. Login to your Uplifter Account
    • If you do not yet have one, you will need to create one.
  2. Participant profiles must be added to your Uplifter account before being able to access the digital Coach ID. To do this you will need to use the Find an Existing Participant Profile feature. The video above shows how to do this or follow the following steps.
  3. Navigate to My Account>> Participants >> Find Participant
  4. Fill in the required fields.

Note (for Club Member Accounts): When looking for an existing profile you will be required to enter the GO# but the number does not have to match in order to find a possible match. If you do not know the GO#, enter any character into the field so the search can start.

Note (for Individual Accounts): When looking for an existing profile you will be required to enter the GO#. Make sure to get this information from your club before proceeding.

  1. Click FIND PARTICIPANT.
  2. After clicking FIND PARTICIPANT, the program will run a search for possible existing profiles. If a profile with similar (or exact for Individual Accounts) information has been found, the participant profile will be added to the account.

Note: Once the profile is added to your account, you may have to refresh the page before the profile appears in the search Filter.

If clicking the FIND PARTICIPANT button returns an error message or the GO# is being used by another participant, this means that individual either (i) does not have an existing profile OR (ii) the details you have entered do not match their existing profile. If this occurs, contact the club that created their profile to confirm the information they used.

To see a video detailing these steps, scroll above the section How to Access a Coach ID on Uplifter title.

Second, you need to Access the digital Coach ID

  1. Once the participant profile is added, click on the coach’s participant profile. To do this, navigate to My Account>> Participants
  2. You can scroll through the list of individuals or click on FILTER PARTICIPANTS BY to open the search.
  3. Begin typing the name in the "SEARCH FOR PARTICIPANT" field.
  4. Click FILTER to start the search.
  5. Click on the coach’s name to access their participant profile.
  6. Scroll to the bottom and you will find the digital coach ID. You must be able to show the following categories:
    • Coach Photo
    • Coach Name
    • Coaching Level
    • NCCP Number
    • Other Requirements
    • Expiry Date

  1. There are three options to show this ID at competitions:
    • Login and show this page live
    • Screenshot this page and show it on your device
      • Please check your own device’s instructions on how to screenshot as it is different depending on how you are doing so (ie. laptop (Windows, Mac, Chrome), tablet, or phone)
    • Print the screenshot yourself and present the hardcopy

Please note Gymnastics Ontario will not provide any hardcopies or digital files. The club and/or coach are responsible for obtaining either a hardcopy or digital copy.

Coaches, if you are having trouble accessing your participant profile and digital Coach ID, please speak to your club administrator. However, if you filled out an application form and received an email confirming that the coach ID was created and do not see it on your participant profile, please contact Beth, the Membership Services Manager, at membership@gymnasticsontario.ca.

 

Waitlisted Programs

Once a program is full, you will no longer be able to register for that event; however, if a waitlist is available, you will be able to JOIN WAITLIST. You can review the program you are waitlisted for by navigating to your account (by clicking on your name in the top right corner) and clicking on Waitlists. Here you can see the event you are waitlisted for, your position and if necessary, can remove yourself from the waitlist by clicking on the trashcan icon.

 

If a spot becomes available, the person at the top of the list will be contacted by email. Once notified, you will have two (2) days to complete the registration. If you do not register on time, you will automatically be removed from the waitlist. You will be contacted by email if you are removed from the waitlist.

FREQUENTLY ASKED QUESTIONS
 
Does Uplifter save user card data?
No. Like they have done in the past, they let our organization's payment gateway (Bambora) handle the card details and Uplifter's systems never see/touch the information. Uplifter Inc and Bambora are both PCI compliant. More information is available on their websites: Uplifter Inc Changes to PCI Compliance and Bambora Certifications & Compliance.
 
Can other administrators in my club's account access each other's cards?
Yes and no. Since we have enabled the "Shared Account" setting you will have the option of selecting to share saved payment methods. This is done through My Account > Account > Saved Payment Methods where you can select the Share option next to any saved payment methods.
