PacificSport Interior BC will receive $50,000 for coach certification support throughout the region. “We are thrilled to be able to offer support to all coaches so they can continue their professional development”, says 2011 WCSG President Henry Pejril. “We have had an outstanding partnership with PacificSport for many multi-sport games with collaboration and expertise”, continues Pejril.
The fund will be set up for anyone who wishes to take a NCCP Coaching Course and will be reimbursed upon completion of the course.
