    Freestyle Canada Coach Pathway Changes

    Ensuring Freestyle Canada has certified coaches who provide a safe sport experience for our members is key to the growth and success of our Freestyle Community

    Coaches are ambassadors of our sport. Investing in knowledge, practical learning experiences and opportunities to assess coach competencies will positively shape our sport and prepare us for future growth.

    A number of exciting new changes have been made to the Coach Pathway in order to ensure coaches can achieve certification with greater ease. The revised pathway has been created through consultation with external industry leaders and internal stakeholders. Significant effort has been made to ensure that the new requirements are considerate of the realities of our coaching community.

    Check out the newly revised coach pathway.
