Volunteer Coaching Staff


Coaching Staff Requirements

All Coaching staff fall under the direction of the Director of Coaching to ensure the highest level of coaching for our players. We rely on a combination of parent coaches and experienced football coaching staff to build the program. Many of our experienced coaches are alumni and we welcome recent alumni to come back and work with us in some capacity. 

The CDMFA requires all coaches be NCCP certified for their applicable positions and age divisions for football within the community sport stream.  As a risk management issue, there will no longer be a one year grace period to meet the CDMFA Coaching/NCCP requirements. All coaches must have these requirements met by the CDMFA roster deadline of the current season. CDMFA Policy - Coaching Standards & Requirements can be found here

If you are interested in a Coaching position with Mustangs football, please review the following requirements. If you feel you can meet these requirements, please click the application link at the bottom of the page to express you interest. 

National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) Registration

All coaching staff must have a National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) number. If you do not have an NCCP number, you can get one by signing up at the www.thelocker.coach.ca.

When you log in to their account, you will be able to see what courses and certifications have been complete and when they expire. The Club and League will also be able to access this information to ensure all requirements are being met
