2018 Children’s Licence Pilot results in 21 coaches being granted 3-year licence
Twenty-one coaches from organizations in Ontario are the initial recipients of the Canada Soccer Children’s Licence designed for coaches working full-time in the game with players aged 5-12.
The initial recipients include staff working at Canada Soccer Member Associations and clubs that are part of the Canada Soccer Club Licensing Program.
The Children’s Licence has been built as 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.
