Ontario Soccer has implemented a Coaching Professional Development Point Program (CPDPP) which will track the continual development of coach education for all of our soccer coaches across the province.
Ontario Soccer will implement a series of coaching forums, conferences and educational sessions purposely to provide coaches with points to assist with their goal to achieve the level required to stay up to date and current with Ontario coaching development and education curriculum.
This point system will specifically focus on coaches who currently possess the following:
Possess a Provincial B Licence Certification (must be certified after January 2012).
Must acquire a total of 18 points to in order to obtain certification upon certification expiry.

CPDPP System is as follows: Coaches have five years from the date of their issued Provincial B Licence to the date of the expiry date of their Provincial B Licence to obtain the required 18 points to maintain their Provincial B Licence Certification. Ontario Soccer will track these points.

Coaches will be notified upon registration and also on the Ontario soccer website and course registration that this will be a Coach Development Points Program “CPDPP” Course. This will have a logo and acronym attached to the event so coaches can identify the opportunity to collect points.
Each event will be marketed with the points provided to the coaches once the course/event has been completed. These points will be signed off by a Staff Member and/or an assigned LF/MLF on-site to ensure the coaches receive their points.
The Caoching Development Department will manage a database tracking coach activity years and B Licence expirations. The collection of points will also be added to this database.
CPDPP courses/events will then be planned using information from this database. Coaches will also be given a two-part paper that will be signed off twice by the LF/MLF assigned to the CDP course. One copy will go to the Coaching Development Department and the other will go to the coach. This process will be similar to the Pre B and B Licence 3-part assessment form.
