Are you currently targeting other specific populations, locations, or markets for your solution? If so, where and why?
Coaches BC currently supports Women in Coaching and Aboriginal Coaching programs that work to send apprentice coaches to BC, Western Canada and Canada Summer/Winter Games. Through this program we work to provide out apprentice and mentor coaches with the tools and education that will work to advance them in their coaching career. It is our intention to one day give these coaches the opportunity to train with performance analysis software and products.
What type of operating environment and internal organizational factors make your innovation successful?
Coaches BC acts at the Provincial representative for the National Coach Certification Program (NCCP); requiring staff and coaches BC representatives to uphold the standard of delivery set by the Coaches Association of Canada and the NCCP. We work closely with Provincial Sport Representatives and coaches from all 67 sports operating in the province which gives us a strong understanding of the diverse needs BC coaches present. Furthermore, we represent all BC coaches, from community sport introduction all the way through to international and olympic levels. As the leaders in BC Sport we embrace our diverse membership and understand they require a vast amount of coach tools and knowledge sources we are continually working towards to most innovative ideas.
