Conduct and Policies

Rule of Two

The Coaching Association of Canada’s Rule of Two states that there will always be two screened and NCCP-trained or certified coaches with an athlete in situations where the athlete is potentially vulnerable. One–on–one interactions between a coach and an athlete, without another individual present, must be avoided in all circumstances except medical emergencies.
