British Columbia Coaching Certification Course
April 14 @ 8:00 am - 1:00 pm
We had over 50 participants for two WAKO Canada Courses in Quebec last year. One was on Coaching and the other on Officiating. In both courses we learned a lot. I really like the chapter on concussions and athlete safety. It literally enlightened me and was a great experience.

The Board of WAKO Canada has been working with a number of British Columbia clubs to involve the Western Provinces in the programs and competitions offered by our Association and to host more events in B.C. The goal is also to involve more clubs and individuals into the leadership of our National Association.
There are a number of exciting plans underway including hosting a Western Canada Kickboxing Championship (Tatami and Ring Sport) and hosting an International Team event. The focus over the next year will be establishing government recognized PSOs (Provincial Sporting Organizations) and providing certification courses and training camps for coaches and all levels of participations.
To start off this effort WAKO Canada will be hosting a Level I Coaching Certification Course in Sechelt (near Vancouver). This is the the second WAKO Canada Course that has been offered in BC.
The Certification Course is a great professional development course for instructors, coaches, athletes and even parents of participants. The course provides educational modules in the following areas:
Sport Injury Management
Developing Excellence in Coaching
The course is open to all clubs. Over 900 coaches have have participated in this course over the past 14 years making it the longest running and most attended Coach Certification Course in Canada.
The Registration form for the Course is below:
The Certification Course is only open to the first 25 persons that register. The course is expected to be filled early so do not delay and register quickly.
