On behalf of the Canadian Soccer Association, BC Soccer offers national certification courses within the Community Sport Stream and the Licensing Stream which are age specific and focus on the Long Term Player Development stages. For more information on our coaching courses and registration, please visit our “Coaching Courses” page.
In addition to this, BC Soccer also delivers free Grassroots (3hr) workshops across British Columbia that is non-certification based but provide coaches with the basic tools and curriculum to coach any stage of development. For more information, please visit our “Grassroots” page.
This module is offered through Coaches Association of Canada and delivered by its local NCCP partner that is aimed at coaches to identify the legal, ethical, and moral implications of difficult situations that present themselves in the world of team and individual sport. Since the launch of the new courses within our National Coaching Pathway, the Making Ethical Decisions module became a separate component from the soccer-specific courses and enables the coach to complete it on his/her own time. The coach only needs to complete this module once and it is evaluation based. Coaches can initially take the training through either, on-line, in-class or home-study options for $65 and then must complete the online evaluation (included in the fee) meeting a passing grade of minimum 75% in order to obtain record on their NCCP transcript.
Once coaches have completed the MED training and it appears on their NCCP transcript, they will have unlimited attempts at the MED evaluation (Competition Development module). Coaches may also choose to proceed directly to the MED evaluation without taking any training, however, please note the following:
This fee is an $85 charge for directly attempting the on-line evaluation
Coaches will have two (2) attempts at passing the evaluation ONLY. If after two attempts they have not received a passing grade of 75%, coaches will be required to register for MED training prior to re-trying the on-line evaluation
