Coaching Accreditation

Coaching streams

The National Darts Federation of Canada offers coaching training and certification for the sport of darts, in two streams:

  • Community Sport Coach
  • Competition Coach

Community Sport Coaches

The Community Sport Coaching stream is designed to provide training in the basics of coaching. Often, Community Sport Coaches are parents with children participating in the sport or a volunteer who works with participants of all ages that are relatively new to the sport.

To receive full accreditation as a ‘Certified’ Community Sport Coach, you will need to:

  • Successfully complete the NCCP Make Ethical Decisions module
  • Successfully complete the NCCP Make Ethical Decisions online evaluation for Community Sport Coaches
  • Successfully complete the NDFC Technical Level I Coaching course
  • Submit all completed NDFC Level 1 practical assignments
  • Acknowledge, sign and submit the Coaches Code of Ethics

If you have successfully completed all of the required courses but have not yet completed the NCCP online evaluation or submitted your NDFC practical assignments, your status will be identified as a ‘Trained’ Community Sport Coach.

Competition Development Coaches

Coaches in the Competition stream usually have previous coaching experience or are former athletes in the sport. They tend to work with athletes over the long term to improve performance, often in preparation for provincial, national, and international competitions.
