Men’s EXCEL U-14 to U-17 Program DirectorCoach Andrew Olivieri among A Licence renewals
Canada Soccer has announced a cohort of 23 coaches that have received Canada Soccer A Licence and Canada Soccer B Licence awards and renewals across the country for January. The group includes Andrew Olivieri, Men’s EXCEL U-14 to U-17 Program Director Mike Vitualo, Men’s Futsal National Team Assistant Coach, as well as John Clubb, Alberta Soccer’s Manager of Grassroots Development.
The Canada Soccer A Licence is the top-level certification in the Performance Stream of Canada Soccer’s Coach Education Program for coaches working with senior players in a college/university, professional club or academy environment. The A Licence fulfills the coach education requirements of the Canada Soccer Professional Club Licence for the first-team Head Coach.
The Canada Soccer B Licence is the entry point to the Performance Stream and continues the facilitation of learning opportunities so that coaches may work effectively with senior players in the Performance Stream pathway and prepares them to progress to the Canada Soccer A Licence.
Canada Soccer Coach Education Program Licences are valid for a three-year term.
