Coaching Clinics

Currently, Sepak Takraw Association of Canada (STAC) and Sepak Takraw Saskatchewan (STAS) are in the midst of working together with the Coaching Association of Canada to create and pilot an NCCP for Sepak Takraw, starting with the Regu and Doubles games. Until such time as STAC’s NCCP Committee completes a fully developed program, STAS has the directive from the national body to be already training and certifying coaches in Saskatchewan beginning with the Community Sport Stream. Hence, the minimum requirements for achieving Community Sport Stream Certification in Regu/Doubles Sepak Takraw as set out by Sepak Takraw Saskatchewan are:

Theory – Successful completion of the Introduction to Competition-A Course (old Level 1 Theory) … after which coach is considered “In Training”;

Technical – Successful completion of the Community Sport Stream Technical Regu/Doubles Sepak Takraw Clinic … after which coach is considered “Trained”;

Practical – Successful completion of the Practical Sepak Takraw Coaching Component as per outlined below … after which coach is considered “Certified”.
