C License Course

Ontario Soccer is currently accepting registration for C License courses, set to take place on:

  • September 7, 8, 21, 22, 2019 (Pickering & Oakville)
  • September 21, 22, Oct 5, 6, 2019 (Thunder Bay)

Upon applying, coaches will be provided with further details regarding location, times and more.  

The focus of the C License is on the individual player in the different contexts of the game, as we try to develop their decision making and build their level of execution. Coaches learn to develop their sessions based on their players and their developmental objectives. They learn to devise, organize, conduct, and evaluate coaching sessions in basic skills, tactics, and strategies.

It is aimed at coaches working with players who are starting, or still learning and developing, as players. Coaches should be coaching in a competitive environment, as defined by the Canada Soccer Player Pathway.

The requirements for coaches to apply to the C License course are that they must provide proof of: completion of the Learn to Train OR Soccer for Life course(s) AND Making Ethical Decisions, Respect in Sport, and Making Head Way in Soccer.

The deadline to register for the Pickering and Oakville C License course is August 29, 2019. Please ensure you have completed your registration no later than 3:00 p.m. on this date.

B License Part 1 Course

Ontario Soccer is currently accepting registration for the B License Part 1 course, set to take place on:

  • September 30 to October 4, 2019 (Soccer Centre, Vaughan)

The B Licence Part 1 is designed to educate the candidates in the practical and theoretical developments in modern soccer, so that they may devise, organize, conduct and evaluate coaching sessions in basic and advanced skills, tactics, strategies, and systems of play. Candidates will also better understand and employ the complimentary managerial, medical, and coach-related aspects, appropriate to the role of the coach at the competitive level.

It is aimed at coaches working with players in an environment where they are still learning, with some importance given to the result, without sacrificing complete player development.

The requirements for coaches to apply to the B License Part 1 course are that they must provide proof of: Full C License AND Making Ethical Decisions, Respect in Sport, and Making Head Way in Soccer.
