USSA DIRECTOR OF EDUCATIONAL SERVICES ELECTED PRESIDENT OF NATIONAL COUNCIL FOR ACCREDITATION OF COACHING EDUCATION (NCACE) FOR 2007
PARK CITY, Utah (Sept. 5) - USSA Director of Educational Services David McCann was named president-elect of the National Council for Accreditation of Coaching Education (NCACE) at its conference in East Lansing, Mich., earlier this summer. McCann has been USSA Educational Services Director for three years, prior to which he was the associate director of the American Sport Education Program. He will take over as NCACE president at next year's conference in Indianapolis, Ind.
"NCACE is the best opportunity we have to promote quality-coaching education to more sports organizations and universities," said McCann. "NCACE has developed a body of knowledge that programs can use as a foundation on which to develop and improve their coaches education programs. The National Association for Sport & Physical Education (NASPE) Standards for Sports Coaches and the NCACE accreditation process are the key elements needed to help us ‘professionalize' sport coaching."
NCACE's mission is to support qualified coaches through programs that provide quality education. The essential function of the council is to review the quality of coaching education programs and encourage their continuous improvement. NCACE endorses national standards for coaches that facilitate the certification, evaluation and selection of coaches. In addition, the council oversees the development of new educational elements and guidelines for reviewing existing coaches education programs. NCACE reviews coaching education/certification programs that seek accreditation. Reviews are based on the program's compliance with NCACE Guidelines for Coaching Education and the NASPE National Standards for Sport Coaches.
Cathy Sellers, USOC manager of coaching, noted, "David McCann's election as the next president of NCACE shows the respect and dedication of the national governing body of Coach Educators and the efforts that they make to improve coaching in the United States. Dave's efforts at USSA epitomize the development of quality programs and instruction."
The conference attracted more than 100 attendees representing universities, national governing bodies, youth sport organizations and high school associations as well the USOC and National Federation of State High School Associations. Featured speakers included Ron Mason, Michigan State University athletic director; Dan Varner, CEO of Think Detroit/PAL; and Jack Roberts, executive director Michigan High School Athletic Association. Discussions and workshops were aimed at providing coach educators with information and tools that they can use in their programs.

NEW TRam ( repost )
JHMR has contracted with Doppelmayr/CTEC to construct the new Jackson Hole Mountain Resort Aerial Tram and anticipates a scheduled opening December 2008. Preliminary discussions are taking place with the Forest Service regarding approvals required for the replacement of the tram. With an increased capacity of 100 passengers per cabin, the uphill capacity will increase to over 600 passengers an hour, pending Forest Service approval. Carney Architects, a local Jackson firm, is developing concepts for bottom and top terminal enclosures.
"We hope with this decision Jackson Hole will remain the truly unique place it is for all who love the mountains year round, like we do. When we bought the Resort we knew it needed investment and were prepared for that, but the tram replacement has taken a lot of deep thinking to resolve," stated John Kemmerer III, Owner JHMR. "Our family considers Jackson Hole Mountain Resort an integral part of this incredible community and we feel privileged to be able to leave such a legacy for years to come." Kemmerer added.
