Nova Scotian Community Coach Mentorship Program

Applications for 2021-2022 are now open!

The goal of the Nova Scotia Community Coach Mentorship Program is to pair up experienced Nova Scotian coaches with upcoming, committed coaches who are looking to grow in their roles, to increase the opportunities for coaches to work with other coaches to see what other contexts look like and to increase the success rates of upcoming coaches.

The new sport-specific mentorship program has been designed to help with recruitment of coaches and aid athletes with their transition into coaches. If coaches would like to participate in the sport-specific program, they must identify a mentor/mentee from their region who has applied for the program and who they would like to be paired with for the duration of the program.
