The Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) has developed The Responsible Coaching Movement (RCM). It is a call to action for sport organizations, parents, and coaches to enact responsible coaching across Canada – on and off the field.
What Field Hockey Canada (FHC) strives for is that field hockey coaches and administrators across Canada, at all levels, will inform themselves of this movement and submit their pledge. Clubs, and organizations should all submit a pledge in support of this movement.
There are three main steps that are the foundation to the Responsible Coach Movement.
Three Steps to Responsible Coaching. These steps will help participants and coaches benefit fully from sport participation in a safe, healthy, and fun environment. This methodology is a call to action for coaches and sports organizations to learn and apply consistent best practices in coaching.
