Accreditation for Evaluators

A coach Evaluator role is to contribute to the development of coaches after they have acquired their training. This includes assessment, evaluation, debriefing, and follow-up with coaches trying to achieve Certified or Certified Advanced status. Coach Evaluators are experts in the observation process and have in-depth knowledge of the outcomes, criteria, and evidences that comprise the evaluation tools that establish NCCP and Alpine standards for coaches of a particular context.


Coach Evaluators act as ambassadors of the sport and as a resource to coaches seeking to augment and validate their coaching abilities.
