Calgary, AB (October 16, 2018) – Canada’s most deserving and influential Coach Developers have been honoured by the Coaching Association of Canada (CAC) with a 2018 IG Wealth Management Community NCCP Coach Developer Award, including Alberta’s Kelly Wills for her work in the sport of Gymnastics.

The award recognizes outstanding individuals who have gone above and beyond to inspire and develop National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) coaches in their community. A total of 10 Coach Developers from across Canada were recently recognized with a 2018 Award for their contributions to the Canadian sport system.

 “Kelly Wills has invested a considerable amount of time and commitment to gymnastics, which has impacted the local gymnastics community in an overwhelmingly positive way,” said Trevor Krahn, Director, Sponsorship & Community Engagement at IG Wealth Management.

Wills has been facilitating NCCP courses for the Alberta Gymnastics Federation (AGF) since 1996. It is estimated that she has delivered upwards of 300 NCCP workshops and evaluations. She is involved provincially, nationally and internationally and has been trained by Gymnastics Canada to be one of their top Learning Facilitators and Coach Evaluators in Initiation and Introduction level workshops.   

“She is a proven leader who serves as an invaluable resource to aspiring coaches everywhere. We’re honoured to present Kelly Wills with this year’s IG Wealth Management Community NCCP Coach Developer Award,” said Krahn.
