Improve Coaching Programs and Curriculums

NCACE promotes comprehensive standards for sport practitioners, including volunteer, interscholastic, collegiate, and elite coaches. The review process aligns with SHAPE America’s National Standards for Sport Coaches, and ensures that coaches are trained to effectively meet the unique developmental needs of every type of athlete. We hope to provide the highest quality, empirically-based guidance for the creation, implementation, and evaluation of coaching education programs.

Frequently Asked Questions

How can I get my program accredited?
Complete this application and submit it to receive more information about accreditation process and be enrolled in the training programs.

 

Once training is completed, you will be asked to put together a comprehensive folio that represents the organizational overview, personnel, operational procedures, and curricular content of your program. This will be evaluated by NCACE.
I know my program does not meet all of the National Standards. Can I still get accredited?

Programs can seek a comprehensive or core responsibility accreditation. Comprehensive accreditation involves the program meeting all seven core responsibilities and 42 standards as part of the SHAPE America’s National Standards for Sport Coaches. However, programs can seek Core Responsibility Accreditation which involves the program meeting the standards within one or more Core Responsibilities.

How will my program be evaluated to determine accreditation status?

A review panel of coach education experts who have been trained in the NCACE Accreditation process will review your folio against the 16 Accreditation Guidelines. Further information regarding the review process and criteria will be provided during the training process.
