Introductory Coaching


Basketball Nova Scotia’s (BNS) Introductory Coaching Course is a FREE coaching course available to all Basketball Nova Scotia Member Clubs.

The course was created to help bridge the gap for coaches in their first years of coaching prior to completing their NCCP FUNdamentals or Learn to Train Certification. The course is offered by the Club and coordinated through the Club President or Club Technical Director.

BNS is also pleased to assist any Clubs who require assistance in offering the course. Please connect directly with Emma Duinker at for more detail.

The Introductory Coaching Course counts towards BNS’s minimum coach education as required by the Coach Screening Policy.

Included are links to resources to assist newer coaches in preparation for the course and upcoming basketball season.
