DeRosario, DeGuzman and Moscato are working towards their National-B Licenses

Play. Inspire. Unite. 

Three Ontario-born National team players were at the Ontario Soccer Centre last week to take part in the National B Coaching License, as hosted by Canada Soccer. 

Dwayne DeRosario, Carmelina Moscato and Julian DeGuzman are all making the transition from being a player into being a coach and they spoke to Canada Soccer and Jason de Vos, Director of Development, about that change, what it means for themselves and the impact their fellow coaches have on the grassroots game. 

The Canada Soccer B License program 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.

The Canada Soccer B License Program is divided into two courses. Provincial Associations offer part 1 of the Program, also known as the Provincial Course, regionally across Canada.

Canada Soccer offers Part 2, the National Course, on a residential basis. Both the Provincial and National Courses will include practical and theoretical aspects of study with the Final Theory and Practical assessments being held during the National Course.
