Volleyball Manitoba maintains and requires certain standards for coaches of club volleyball teams, in line with Volleyball Canada and Sport Manitoba. These include certification expectations with NCCP, Respect in Sport, as well as Screening requirements.
NCCP Coaching Certification 2017:
In 2017, Volleyball Canada and the Provincial/Territorial Volleyball Associations developed a single policy to apply across the country. The policy is progressive over three years to lessen the demands for time, and allows for meaningful growth as a coach. The NCCP requirements for 13U-16U and 17U-18U levels of play are outlined in the following document:
Please note that under this new policy, National Championship participation counts are being reset, so all coaches attending Nationals this season will be considered to be in their first year at Nationals.
Upcoming ‘Making Ethical Decisions’ modules will be held in Winnipeg on the following dates:

To register, please contact Sheldon Reynolds at Coaching Manitoba at 204-925-5913.
Criminal Record Check and Child Abuse Registry:
Screening of personnel is an important part of providing a safe and secure sporting environment. Consistent with the VM Screening Policy, all coaches, team contacts and administrators must obtain both a Criminal Record Search Certificate (CRSC) and a Child Abuse Registry Check (CARC). It is noted that these checks can take several weeks to complete and therefore coaches are encouraged to initiate the process before December, 2016 – to ensure compliance and allow participation in Provincial and National Championships. Documents are also only valid for 3 years from date of issue. For more information on initiating your screening requirements, please visit the following link:
Respect in Sport On-line Course:
Sport Manitoba believes in being proactive in ensuring sport in our province is safe and welcoming for all participants. Respect in Sport helps to promote those values through a simple and convenient free on-line training course for coaches and sport leaders. It is designed as a tool to assist coaches in identifying and dealing with abuse, neglect, harassment, and bullying in sport.
Respect in Sport enables coaches to deal with legal and moral responsibilities, making them less vulnerable and more confident in dealing with sensitive issues. A risk management tool, Respect in Sport will help sport organizations reduce liability. As a mandatory requirement, all coaches identified with a Provincial Sport Organization within Sport Manitoba are required to take the course.
Without this Certification a Coach will not be allowed to participate in any Sanctioned Event. In addition, all coaches who took the online course prior to 2012, will be required to complete it again to remain compliant with this requirement.
