To further build the level of sports expertise in the community, Tourism Sault Ste. Marie is facilitating a prominent coaching clinic next week. Delivered by the Coaches Association of Ontario, the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) 2017 Super Clinic is taking place at various local venues from Friday, March 24 to Sunday, March 26.

“This is a great opportunity for local and area residents,” said Ian McMillan, Executive Director of Tourism Sault Ste.

Our goal is to continue to build on the city’s sports-friendly reputation, which will allow Sault Ste. Marie to host more high-level tournaments. The 2017 Super Clinic will go a long way in helping us achieve that objective.”
