Coaches Development Program

Rooted in our mission and values, the Coaches Development Program is an informational and educational leadership training program for CYO coaches.

Img00222

Once an adult accepts the responsibility to coach in CYO Athletics, they also accept the responsibility to maintain a standard for excellence. Every coach, both head and assistant, must attend the Coaches Development Program (CDP) before they begin coaching.

The program includes interactive sessions on the following topics: 

  • CYO Athletics as Ministry
  • CYO Governance
  • Risk Management
  • Coaching Pedagogy
  • Helping Young Athletes Safely Excel in Sports
