What is OFSAA's Coaching in Ontario Schools (CIOS) Workshop?
CIOS is a program developed by the Coaching Association of Canada and the Ontario Federation of School Athletic Associations to give teacher-coaches and community volunteer coaches the special skill-set they need to coach effectively in the school environment. The three and a half hour course is NCCP accredited, and participants will also receive an OFSAA Certificate of Completion. It also provides 3 PD points to maintain NCCP certification.
The workshop is led by a NCCP trained Learning Facilitator and combines information required by coaches of beginner to intermediate athletes with skills they specifically need to work with student-athletes in the school environment.
Why should you host an NCCP/OFSAA CIOS Workshop?
Over 200,000 students participate in high school sports, with 25,000 coaches providing quality athletic programs in our secondary schools.
