Canada Soccer announce Coach Education Program recipients for May 2021

Twenty-nine coaches receive Advanced Coach Education Program Licences

Canada Soccer has announced twenty-nine coaches that completed the requirements of its Advanced Coach Education Program for April/May 2021. The cohort includes six female coaches that completed their Canada Soccer B Licence and Northwest Territories Soccer Association Technical Director Huw Morris, who received his Children’s Licence.

The Canada Soccer B Licence is the entry point to the Performance Stream and continues the facilitation of learning opportunities so that coaches may work effectively with senior players in the Performance Stream pathway and prepares them to progress to the Canada Soccer A Licence.

The Canada Soccer Children’s Licence is an A Licence equivalent for coaches working with children between the ages of 5-12. The Licence aims to provide coaches with the tools they need to create the best development environments for as many players as possible at their club/academy.

The Canada Soccer Youth Licence provides coaches with theoretical and practical components focusing on holistic, effective coaching of youth players between the ages of 13-18 including designing, delivering and reflecting on all aspects of on and off field activities.

Canada Soccer Advanced Coach Education Program Licences are valid for a three-year term.
