Rule of Two in a Virtual Environment


 Phase 1 - Licensing Stream

The Licensing Stream is aimed at those who are more serious about their coaching development, and requires that coaches reach a minimum standard of competence in a practical coaching environment. Each coach is, therefore, formally evaluated and graded by Staff Evaluators at each stage of the process. This process begins with the B License Program, which involves a total of 60 hours of facilitated learning plus time allocated for formal assessments. It is aimed at coaches working with players in an environment where performance is a critical factor in successful coaching. The A License Programincludes a total of 90 hours of facilitated learning, plus formal assessments, and caters to those wishing to make a career of coaching at the highest level.

Coaches wishing to gain training and certification in the Licensing Stream would do so in the following manner:

  • B License Pre-Test Course: Completion of a 21-hour training course and an official evaluation (Training to Train Stage of Development). 
    Pre-requisites: Community Coach or Soccer for Life Trained status, or ex-Professional/National Team Player (minimum 3 years experience)
     
  • B License-Provincial Course: Completion of the training course totaling 30 hours and an official evaluation process (Training to Train Stage of Development).
    Pre-requisites: Successful completion of B License Pre-Test Course
     
  • B License-National Course: Completion of the training course totaling 40 hours and an official evaluation process (Training to Compete Stage of Development).
    Pre-requisites: Successful completion of B License-Provincial Course or Canadian Equivalency
     
  • A License Course: Completion of the training course totaling 90 hours and an official evaluation process (Training to Compete Stage of Development).  
    Pre-requisites: Successful completion of the B License-National or Canadian Equivalency

Each of the courses within the program is built with an emphasis placed on the practical application of certain coaching skills, also known as “competencies”. These competencies are expanded upon as the coach progresses through the program and will range from showing an understanding of the rules of small-sided-soccer to running an effective practice with players in a high performance environment.
