The most deserving and influential NCCP Coach Developers in Canada are honoured annually by the Coaching Association of Canada with the Community NCCP Coach Developer Awards. Included among the 2020 recipients is Alan Smith, for his work in the sport of curling. These awards recognize outstanding individuals who have gone above and beyond to inspire and develop National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) coaches in their community. A total of 9 NCCP Coach Developers from across the country were recently recognized with an award for their contributions to the sport system in Canada.
“Alan Smith has invested considerable time and energy into developing and educating NCCP coaches, which has had an overwhelmingly positive impact on their community,” said Natalie Rumscheidt, Director of Marketing and Communications at the Coaching Association of Canada. “They are a proven leader who is an invaluable resource and mentor for aspiring coaches. We are honoured to present Alan Smith with a 2020 Community NCCP Coach Developer Award.” Curling Québec will present the award to Alan during the Scotties and Tankard Provincial Championships.
We are extremely proud of Alan’s accomplishments. His dedication to our sport and his work as Coach Developer has motivated and influenced curling in all corners of Québec. This award is unequivocally well-deserved. Congratulations Alan! We would like to express our deepest gratitude for all your hard work through the years.
