  • How to provide a safe practice/game environment for your players.

16 hours. An interactive workshop led by an expert facilitator with years of experience coaching soccer. You'll spend time in the classroom and on the field practicing drills. There are vibrant deliberations regarding parent management and guidance on all safety requirements.

Quick Resource:
Ontario Soccer has created a series of brochures in the form of mini-pamphlets that walk coaches through four of the key physical literacy stages of Long-Term Player Development (LTPD). Each of these resources provide very basic but helpful information through Active Starts, FUNdamentals, Learn to Train and Soccer for Life for volunteer coaches.
