WE ARE CREATING AN ATHLETIC COMMUNITY THAT CHANGES LIVES

WE ARE ATHLETES

WE ARE COACHES

WE ARE COMMUNITY-BUILDERS

We believe youth athletics provides the most strategic opportunity to help young people be mentally and emotionally prepared for life.

PEOPLE >
PERFORMANCE

Our mission is to develop full-hearted coaches who prepare young people for life.

We envision a world where athletics teaches every kid that they belong and matter for who they are, not how they perform.

EMOTIONAL DEVELOPMENT FOR ATHLETIC COACHES

We know that only emotionally healthy coaches can develop emotionally healthy athletes. Our core programs grow coaches’ self-awareness and ability to lead relationally. All coaches in our programs move through our four-step process of transformation:

N

OPEN

to the idea that to be a better coach you have to be a better you

U

ENGAGE

in self-awareness process

EXPERIENCE

support through peer community

ENCOURAGE

depth of living and intentional leadership

LED BY OUR VALUES

Day in and day out, you can expect every NCC representative to embody our core values.

COURAGE

we have heart and take risks   

WHOLENESS

we value all aspects of ourselves and of others

AUTHENTICITY

we are who we say we are and we do what we say we will do

COMMUNITY

we believe relationship is the greatest change-agent

INNOVATION

we do not settle for the status quo

WHAT MAKE US DIFFERENT

We are focused on deep impact and lasting change. 

PROCESS-ORIENTED APPROACH

We know change takes time. We are not in the business of quick fixes or a better playbook. We are doing the long, slow work of transforming mindsets and hearts.

EMPHASIS ON MENTAL AND EMOTIONAL HEALTH

We believe that emotional intelligence is more important than IQ for effective, whole-hearted leadership. Our programs are designed to take coaches “below the waterline” to address the core issues that enable healthy leadership.

CONTEXTUALIZED WITHIN PEER COMMUNITY

Relationships are our greatest strategy. We need like-minded leaders to help us grow and stay the course. All our work is done connecting coaches to other coaches in meaningful ways so that no one has to lead alone.

“At NCC, we are not after “box-checking” or teaching simple behavior modification. We are going after the root causes of transactional leadership. It is slow, costly, inefficient and absolutely beautiful heart work that yields deep meaning and lasting impact. Our young people will be better for the rest of their lives because of the transformational coaches NCC equips.”
