Coaching Association of Canada (CAC)

Information and resources

Coaches must meet the CAS Coach Registration and Certification Policy to be eligible to be on deck. In addition to this, the CAC requires that all coaches maintain their certification via professional development points.

Please note that it is your responsibility to stay on top of your points. If you do not meet the requirements, the CAC will change your certified status to ‘not renewed’. At this point you will no longer be eligible to be on deck at national level meets.

Alberta Artistic Swimming will offer occasional sport specific and/or non-sport specific opportunities. Points are earned based on the parameters set out by the CAC and Canada Artistic Swimming. If you are attending, or have attended, something not delivered by Synchro Alberta, Canada Artistic Swimming or the CAC you can self report these in your Locker profile, under the certification page.

REMEMBER: you are eligible to earn one point per year as an active coach. Points must be recorded annually through the self report process on your Locker profile.

Since most non-NCCP learning opportunities are offered through other organizations, Alberta Artistic Swimming will do its best to provide information and links on this page for your convenience. If you know of any opportunities that you would like to pass along, please send the information and link to Jennifer Flowers for posting.


Edmonton Sport Council / Calgary Sport Council – The Edmonton and Calgary Sport Councils offer a variety of opportunities through on-line and in person clinics and workshops throughout the year. Check out their links for multi-sport learning opportunities.
