Program area: Coach Education

Organizations hosting coaching seminars and conferences are eligible to receive funding to help offset expenses.  These programs can be held in collaboration with Provincial Sport Organizations, schools, or municipal recreation departments.  The goal of the program is to encourage partner collaboration to increase the hosting of educational programs for coaches across the province in all settings.  All projects with sport specific elements would require partnership with the respective provincial sport organization.  Leadership programs currently supported by government funding are not eligible.

Please note that initiatives lead and coordinated by Provincial Sport Organizations should be directed to the Coaching section of the PSO projects program.

Funding amount: $25,000

Funding criteria will include the following:

1.    Training, education being offered by the program
2.    Number of participants
3.    Fit with the Long-Term Athlete Development Model

Evaluation of these programs would be based upon an examination of the criteria listed above.
Allocation process:

Funding is for a maximum of $1,000.00 per initiative and cannot exceed 50% of the total cost of the initiative.  An organization is limited to one application per fiscal year.  Decisions will be made on a monthly basis by a coaching sub-committee including representatives from Sport Nova Scotia, the Canadian Sport Centre Atlantic, and Nova Scotia Department of Health and Wellness. 
Application/allocation timeline:

Organizations can apply at any time.
