Course Synopsis/Rationale:

This course is designed to provide an opportunity for our students to achieve a Level 1
technical, practical and theoretical certification in basketball technical in the National
Coaching Certification Program (NCCP). Students will complete the requirements for
Pre-Level 1 and Level 1 Certification during this course.

The Basketball Canada Coaching Certification Program bases its technical elements on
the Basketball Development Model (BDM). The BDM is a guide to the relationship
between age of the athlete and basketball activities which are most appropriate at that
age, permitting an athlete-centered approach to player development.

The coaching certification program is designed to allow coaches to develop competencies
by progressing through specified levels. It is comprised of three elements: technical,
theory and practical components. In our class at Heritage Park, we will fulfill all three
elements. The technical and theoretical portions will be handled in class and seminars
while the practical will be accomplished through coaching a community team
(elementary or club).

We will be emphasizing teaching individual skills required for coaching basketball:

       Socialization                                      Rebounding
       Teaching                                           Defense
       Analysis of skill                                  Physical fitness
       Footwork and dribbling                             Care and prevention of injuries
       Individual offense                                 Planning
       Team offense

By providing our students with this opportunity, we will be encouraging our students to
understand the skills required to coach in the community and prepare them to coach in
the community (possibly at an elementary school) if the opportunity arises. The student
would also benefit from the exposure to the mental training and fitness aspects of the
course. The expectation is the students would apply these concepts to their own sport
training, thus improving themselves as athletes.
