As part of our Coach-the-Coach program the club will be hosting a series of BC Soccer Grassroots clinics.  Clinics for all age groups will be offered this coming March.   The role of a coach is critical in the delivery of a positive soccer experience. Players want to learn, grow, and be challenged, in a fun, safe, inclusive, and welcoming environment. Continuous education is paramount in developing coaches for their own confidence and enjoyment, but the benefit to players is critical in all levels of participation.  BC Soccer Clinics offers new and returning coaches the opportunity to gain confidence and improve their coaching. 

BC Soccer coach education is more accessible now that they have moved to a blended learning format allowing coaches to complete the theoretical part of the course online (Online Theory Part 1) and the on-field component (Practical Workshop Part 2) by attending an in person practical workshop. 

CVUSC will present four Grassroots Coaching Educations Workshops this March.
