Coach Evaluations

C Licence Evaluations

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:

  • Personal and professional schedules,
  • Access to players,
  • Access to field time
  • Access and level of comfort with the technology required to video record your session, and capture and sync the audio

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.

 

Evaluation Process

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:

  • Block 1: January - March
  • Block 2: April - June
  • Block 3: July - September
  • Block 4: October - December

Within each block, coaches will complete the evaluation process, as follows:

  1. Create an account and login to the Ontario Soccer Coach Evaluation Platform. Please ensure you check your e-mail (inbox & spam folder) on the first week of your registered Evaluation Block.
  2. Creation and submission of your full Session Plan and Emergency Action Plan (EAP);
  3. Pre-brief of your session plan with your assigned Ontario Soccer Evaluator, prior to delivering your session;
  4. Video recording and submission of your training session;
    • The recording can total no more than 30 minutes
    • Only the Initial Game and Analytical Activity must be recorded
    • A minimum of 12 players that are at least 11 years of age (U12) or older must be used
  5. Review of your recorded session by your Coach Evaluator;
  6. Debrief with feedback from your Coach Evaluator, for your submitted session.

See below for the Video Evaluation Process and Video Evaluation Guidelines documents.
