Canada Soccer has developed the Canada Soccer Pathway (LTPD) and tailored the Coach Education Program into a two-streamed model (Community and Licensing). BC Soccer is responsible for training coaches across the province at all levels and we are pleased to offer a new online coach education initiative to help all coaches.
Classroom/Theory for all Community Coaching Courses Now Online
In light of the current situation with the suspension of on-field soccer activity, in conjunction with Canada Soccer, we are pleased to introduce online delivery of the classroom/theory for all community coaching courses at no charge. The current offering provides online access to the theory component (part 1) for coaches wanting to start their certification process in the Community Stream. Coaches taking the online theory are able to register for the practical on-field component (part 2) when on-field soccer activity resumes to obtain their full certification.
The online theory for the Community Stream is made up of various modules that help coaches become more knowledgeable at the age specific stages of development that they coach. Participants can work at their own pace to complete the online modules which will take approximately 60-90 minutes to complete per course. To receive full certification credit, coaches are required to complete the online theory component (part 1) as a pre-requisite to register for the practical on-field component (part 2). Once both parts have been completed, coaches will receive certification credit.
If you are or will be coaching in one or more of the following age groups and previously have not completed this course requirement, then the online theory is for you.
