The Ontario Soccer Association is pleased to announce the launch of the first Technical Director Diploma course presented in Canada. The course focuses on defining the Technical Director’s role and providing them with the necessary tools required to meet the demands of the position. The course addresses topics such as Player Development through the Talented Pathway, Management and Leadership styles, and Mentorship and many more. The course is delivered over four days straight and a 100% attendance is required. The course will feature a series of in-class and on-field practical sessions. It is mandatory that coaches are physically able to participate in all on-field sessions throughout the entire course. Candidates will be required to complete pre and post course assignments to complete the course.
Course Application Requirements
Eligible candidates must obtain a minimum Provincial B License, or equivalent, Make Ethical Decisions, Respect in Soccer, and Making Headway in Soccer.
How to Apply
Coaches create an account on Coach Centre if they do not already have an existing account. Applications will only be accepted via E2E Coach Centre. Coach Centre will send an automated email to the coach stating that the application has been submitted.
Acceptance into the Course
The OSA will review the application to ensure that the coach meets the course requirements. Once the coach is accepted, they will be sent an automated email from CoachCentre stating that they have been accepted. In order to complete registration the coach must then select which course they wish to attend. Coaches are required to make a payment for the course and also complete the Laws of the Game exam which is located on their CoachCentre profile. Please note if a payment is not made within 24 hrs, the system will remove the candidate from the class list and the candidate would then run the risk of losing their spot on the course.
Will be determined by the OSA and advertised on Coach Centre.
Coaches will be mailed their Technical Director Diploma Certificate if they have successfully completed their post course assessments and 100% attendance on the course.
