We have programmed several coaching clinics covering all areas of coaching development from the brand new parent, novice coach, through to select coach. The intent is to provide you with all the tools you need to develop yourself into the best coach and our youth into the best soccer players they can be, while having fun. As per BC Soccer guidelines and in support of coach education Head Coaches of any youth team shall complete the appropriate CSA/BCSA coaching course respective to the age group of the team(s) they will be coaching.  CVUSC will cover the cost of the clinics for our coaches. Clinics will be held at the CVUSC Clubhouse and Valley View Fields. There is no better way to build your confidence and understanding of the basics of coaching We encourage all coaches take at least one clinic per year- our Comox Valley youth deserve it.

This stage introduces players to disciplined training and begins to develop their understanding of principles of play alongside their skills practice. Repetitions are important to develop technical proficiency, but creating a fun and challenging environment is still paramount to stimulate learning and promote a love of the game. Game formats can range from 6v6 to 8v8 as players advance through this stage, and again a simple league schedule can be created, but no standings should be kept – the emphasis is still FUN. All players play equal time and try all team positions, including goalkeeping, and the training to competition ratio should be 2 to 3 training sessions for every game.
