The Evaluation process was disrupted by the global pandemic during 2020 and 2021, however, the opportunity for coaches to register for an evaluation in 2022 will open on December 15, 2021.
Before requesting an evaluation...
Take into consideration the following factors that may affect you and your ability to complete the evaluation during the required time period:
When registering for an Evaluation Block, coaches must ensure they are able to complete the entire process in the allotted three (3) month timeframe. Failure to complete the process or withdrawal at any point will result in an incomplete attempt and require that the coach re-registers for another Evaluation Block with the accompanying fee in full. No exceptions will be made.
If a coach believes that they will not be able to complete the evaluation within the assigned Block, and wish to be moved to a different Block or removed altogether, the coach must inform Ontario Soccer via e-mail two weeks prior to the beginning of the block. Requests to be re-assigned or removed that are received within two weeks of the assigned Block will be subject to a $250 fee.
Upon fully completing the C Licence course, coaches must successfully complete their practical evaluation to attain C Licence "Certified" status. Evaluations are completed via the video evaluation platform. The year is organized into four (4) blocks that are three (3) months in duration.
For 2022, the Evaluation Blocks are as follows:
Within each block, coaches will complete the evaluation process, as follows:
See below for the Video Evaluation Process and Video Evaluation Guidelines documents.
How do I request my evaluation?
Click on "Register Here" below for the respective Block. After registering, coaches will be vetted prior to access being provided to the Video Evaluation Platform. Coaches must monitor their email (inbox & spam folder) for the invitation to join the platform.
Important: For coaches that completed their course prior to 2019, payment steps will be shared to finalize registration. Coaches that completed their course in 2019 and beyond have already completed payment through their registration for the course.
If coaches are unsuccessful in their evaluation, they are eligible for up to two (2) re-evaluations within their 'trained' status period (currently 3 years; previously 5 years). Each additional evaluation is subject to payment of $250.
Coaches are able to appeal an unsuccessful evaluation and/or the evaluation process or procedure. Please see the Appeals document below for detailed information on the appeal process.
