The INS Coaches

Coaches form an important part of the sports system. This is why the Institut national du sport du Québec seeks to train international-calibre coaches who can prepare athletes to deliver performances worthy of a medal—as much in the sporting arena as in life.

In order to contribute to the training of high-performance coaches and service providers, the Institut national du sport du Québec offers a variety of programs, including the Advanced Coaching Diploma (ACD) from the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) and a physical training and assessment diploma in partnership with Université de Poitiers.

In an effort to provide relevant information towards the professional development of high-performance coaches, INS Québec also offers complements to training in the form of various gatherings and communications.

With respect to training, INS Québec’s objectives are as follows :

  • improve French-language training available to coaches while helping them to gain experience and be more effective.
  • provide integrated training for high-performance coaching practices focused on acquiring the necessary skills for this purpose.
  • provide an educational program to fit the context
