Competition Development

Competition Development is the replacement to the Level 3 Certification program. It is a program that is administered and delivered by the Curling Canada with assistance from its Member Associations (Curl BC).

Workshop dates and locations are set through Curling Canada

Cost: 2015 fee was $450.00

During this training coaches will learn:

– Current Technical Skills
– How to Analyze Technical and Tactical Performance
– Performance Planning
– Program Management
– Advanced Strategy
– Advanced Practice Planning
– Prevention and Recovery (Integrated Multisport Module)
– Developing Athletic Abilities (Integrated Multisport Module)

The program will take approximately 14 months to complete, as it requires writing, implementing, executing and debriefing an
annual plan.

In addition to the annual plan portfolio, two observation evaluations (a practice and a competitive environment) must be completed. Coaches will need to complete the Competition Development Make Ethical Decision Online Evaluation, and will need to complete the four remaining competition development multisport modules:

  • Managing Conflict
  • Coaching and Leading Effectively
  • Psychology of Performance
  • Leading Drug Free Sport.

Questions about the workshop should be directed to Jennifer Ferris, NCCP Transition Consultant for the Canadian Curling Association at jferris@curling.ca.


The Competition Development workshop is replacing Level 3 Technical. As of December 31, 2013, Level 3 Technical no longer exists. Competition Development is a comprehensive course that is designed to assist coaches in taking their teams to the next level of competitive play (eg: provincial, national or international). It is recommended that coaches are working with teams that are “Training to Compete.” The workshop encompasses planning, strategy, analysis and program management to better your team’s performance.

The Competition Development course is being delivered by the Canadian Curling Association at a national level and is open to coaches from all provinces and territories. The intent is to offer the workshop once a year and in different location in Canada every year.

While ice time is minimal in this workshop, curling gear will be required.

Prerequisites: Coaches are Level 2 Certified in the old system or Competition Coach Certified.
