NCCP Competition 3 (Development)



Competition 2 Pathway


The NCCP training system for  Gymnastics Ontario Competition stream coaches is undergoing some important changes. NCCP levels have been phased out for Artistic Gymnastics.


Please note that there are several differences between the Levels System and Competition Stream for coaches looking to become certified (see below for more details).


Webinar #20 – NCCP Updates and Information Session




Coaches must meet the following requirements in order to register for any Competition 2 course:

  • Minimum 16 years of age (no exceptions)
  • Fully Competition 2 (Introduction Advanced) Certified



MED (Make Ethical Decisions) Online Evaluation


All competition coaches are required to complete the MED (Make Ethical Decisions) Online Evaluation.


This evaluation can be found under the eLearning tab in The Locker. To access this evaluation, coaches can sign into the Locker using their personal NCCP number.  Coaches who have completed their Foundations training will have access to this evaluation, free of charge.



Certification Pathway


Practical hours are not accepted for coaches trained under the Competition Stream. The practical requirement for certification, Competition 2 (Introduction Advanced) Coach Evaluation Package, has been released by Gymnastics Canada.  Only trained/certified Coach Evaluators can perform an evaluation. Details for the coach evaluation are to be agreed upon between the coach and the Coach Evaluator. Coaches/Club Administrators may contact GO to be connected with a Trained Coach Evaluator. If you are a Competition 2 Certified coach (or higher) and interested in become a Coach Evaluator (CE), contact the Education Program Manager for more details.



Competition Floor Access


Coaches or administrators may apply for an updated Coach ID once they have completed their Competition 2 certification. Coaches must have completed their Respect in Sport modules and MED evaluation before applying. A Coach ID is the easiest way to verify your trained/certified status. You can apply for a coach ID here. For help accessing your coach ID on Uplifter, please visit the NCCP help page.
