GymCan Values-Based Coaching Module

5 June 2024

In celebration of the Canadian Championships being declared a True Sport event, GymCan’s Values-Based Coaching Module is up and running again!

The Values-Based Coaching Module introduces gymnastics coaches to the values and principles of True Sport, expands their understanding of the connections between values-based sport and GymCan’s Safe Sport Framework and long-term development model, and provides practical exercises to help coaches implement key learnings in real-life situations. 

Throughout the module coaches are provided with True Sport information, activities, ideas, and tools to help them deliver values-based programming. This course also highlights how coaching through a True Sport lens will help ensure a positive and enriching gymnastics experience for all.

Gymnastics coaches who complete the course will develop the skills and confidence necessary to create the fair, safe, inclusive environment participants need in order to experience all the benefits of good sport.

They will also receive three Professional Development Points towards maintenance of their NCCP certification.
