Coach Pathway and Certification


As of June 1st, 2016, all volunteer coaches of any youth team are required to complete the appropriate CSA / BC Soccer coaching course respective to the age group of the team(s) they are currently coaching.  Under BC Soccer guidelines, all head coaches must comply with this requirement within 6 months of their appointment; CSA foreign equivalency may be applied.
