Coaches attend Canada Soccer's National B License course in Halifax
Posted on 2 August 2016 in Coaching
Canada Soccer’s second 2016 National B Coaching License course wrapped 31 July in Halifax, NS. Coaches from eight provincial associations were registered for the course that was hosted by Soccer Nova Scotia. Canada Soccer Director of Coaching Ray Clark and Staff Coach Sean Fleming were on hand to guide the intensive seven-day course that presents coaches with classroom and on-pitch learning opportunities.
“We’ve had a great week here in Halifax,” said Clark. “The participants on this B License National Course were tremendous to work with and committed to developing themselves as coaches.”
As outlined within the Long-Term Player Development pathway, the Canada Soccer Coaching B License program is designed to provide and train coaches with the tools to prepare talented young players both technically and tactically.
“The demand was high, nonetheless, these coaches deserve great credit for the way they represented themselves, their clubs, and soccer in Canada,” Clark said.
The next two National B courses will be held in Vaughan, Ontario from 15-21 August and 12-18 September.
Canada Soccer’s 2014-18 Strategic Plan – Leading a Soccer Nation – identifies the investment in technical leadership by supporting our players, coaches and officials at all levels of the sport as a key part of the road map to make Canada a Leading Soccer Nation.
