By OSA News, 03/07/16, 10:45AM EST


The Technical Advisory Committee has approved the motion to make it mandatory for all coaches in all District Competitive Leagues and higher to have completed the required LTPD specific courses with respects to the age groups they are coaching in effective April 2017.

  • Active Start U4-U5
  • FUNdamentals U6-U8
  • Learn to Train U9-U12
  • Soccer for Life U13+

Coaches will also be required to complete the online module ‘Making Head Way in Soccer Concussion Course’ provided by the National Coaching Certificate Program (NCCP). 

This online module can be found on the NCCP website and will require 60-90 minutes to complete. Previous community courses from the old system (Child, Youth & Senior) will not be recognized due to changes implemented in the new development system. 

If you have any further questions please contact the Coaching Development Department.
