By OSA News, 09/26/14, 11:00AM EDT


Getting an education in soccer has never been so easy.

The Ontario Soccer Association, through its Grassroots Soccer Development department is now working with Bishop MacDonnell Catholic High School in Guelph, to provide 23 students in its Health and Physical Education Soccer Course with instruction in soccer coaching and player development.

During the semester the students will be taught theoretical and practical approaches in Active Start, Fundamentals and Learn to Train coaching courses.

These age and stage appropriate courses will give the students’ knowledge to run successful and complete practices for grassroots soccer players in their communities and clubs.

Guelph Soccer Club has partnered with the OSA and Bishop MacDonnell High School in providing the technical resources for this new program.

For more information on participating grassroots soccer programs please contact Bobby Lennox, Manager of Grassroots Development
