The Canada Soccer C Licence workshop is the entry level course for the Advanced Coach Education pathway and prepares the coach to progress to the Development Stream (Children), Development Stream (Youth) or Performance Stream (Senior). The Canada Soccer C Licence involves the facilitation of learning opportunities for the coach to develop an understanding of the coaching process. Currently this workshop is being delivered online and requires that coaches reach a minimum standard of competence. Each coach will be assigned tasks to complete throughout the online workshop and will be supported by staff Coach Developers.
To be accepted into the Canada Soccer C Licence, you must be 16 years or older, a Canadian Citizen or Permanent Resident.
Coaches who successfully complete the training requirements are eligible to progress to the evaluation process if they choose. Coaches must have completed the following to be eligible for register for the C Licence Evaluation:
