  • As per the Football Canada mandate, all coaches must be community coach trained by 2021 if you are instructing athletes under the age of 14.  In 2020 the new mandate requires each Atom, Peewee and Bantam team’s Head Coach and 4 other assistants to be “Community Sport Novice Coach” Trained.
  • The clinic will introduce you to the fundamentals of football with a recreational focus. Taking this workshop will give you skills and confidence in the key areas of practice planning, making ethical decisions and fundamental technical football skills. The skills learned are ideal for voluntary coaches who have children who participate in football or who wish to assist participants of all ages who are new to the sport.
  • Community Sport E-Learning – $29.99 – https://nccp.footballcanada.com/index.php
  • *Coaches who are Certified Competition Introduction Position Coaches or above are exempt from this and are included in the minimum number requirement.  To become a Certified Position Coach, you must submit the clinic workbook, pass the online MED Exam and complete an on-site evaluation.
