Coach & Referee Course Updates


Coach and Referee Education has gone online!

We are pleased to announce that the theory components of Community Stream coaching workshops and the Small Sided Games and Entry Level referee courses will now be delivered by Google Classroom. The new blended format (online and in-person) will allow participants to cover the classroom component online, at your own time, from anywhere you have an internet connection. You can register for these online courses through the Clinic Registration form on your Member Organization's RAMP registration platform. Links to your VSA MO are listed below.

Please note that all Community Stream courses have been changed as of 2020. Canada Soccer has moved towards a blended format for course delivery. What this means, is that the content previously held in the classroom will now be delivered online via a Google Classroom. Once the online component of the course has been completed, coaches can then sign up for an in-person on-field workshop for their corresponding course. Once a coach has completed both their online theory component and on-field practical component as well as Making Ethical Decisions, they will be updated in the NCCP Locker as Stage Trained (ie. Soccer for Life ‘Trained’).

Dates for the in-person on-field workshops have not yet been determined, however we encourage all coaches and referees to complete the online theory components now. Due to the change in delivery method of these clinics/courses, the in-person on-field time has been significantly reduced as well.
