Canada Soccer Nation Inside launches to connect Canadian soccer community
Posted on 30 March 2020 in Canadian Soccer Association
As part of an ongoing effort to encourage, engage and motivate the Canadian soccer community, Canada Soccer has launched the Canada Soccer Nation Inside platform to unite players, coaches, referees, volunteers, and fans who are doing their part to stay inside and off the pitch. The platform will provide unique online content as well as support public health authority messaging in the effort to curb the spread of COVID-19 across our communities.
Online education will kick off this week with Canada Soccer’s Men’s National Team Head Coach and Men’s EXCEL Program Director John Herdman and his staff delivering a Men’s EXCEL 101 webinar that will provide knowledge and insight to coach and player development within the Men’s EXCEL Program. The free webinar runs online this Saturday 4 April starting at 15.00 ET / 12.00 PT with registration available at https://zoom.us/webinar/register/WN_2Z0-Z55NS0WH9Tnw5ZAFTw. In a time when all of Canada has committed to staying off the pitch, the webinar offers coaches an opportunity to continue their development.
“During this challenging time, Canada Soccer Nation needs to be stronger than ever while supporting our government’s efforts to flatten the curve of this ongoing global pandemic,” said Steven Reed, Canada Soccer President. “We can see through all the great photos and videos being shared that everyone is doing their best to keep soccer in their day-to-day lives. Until we are back on the pitch, Canada Soccer Nation Inside will celebrate our collective love for the game.”
For as long as it takes, Canada Soccer will bring the sport to Canadians in their homes through online education, National Team player features and access, grassroots activities, and digital engagement. Canada Soccer will also continue to share updated information available through the relevant governing bodies and public health agencies as well as updates from Provincial and Territorial Member Associations.
