All Division 1 and 2 coaches at levels U9 to U18 are required to have community coach certification (National Coaching Certification Program). There are four levels of certification, based on the age of the children being coached:
Educator S1 (Beginner: ages 4 to 6)
Educator S2 (Child: ages 7 to 9)
Educator S3 (Youth: ages 10 to 12)
Educator S7 (Senior: ages 13 and older).
All coaches are strongly encouraged to obtain coach certification, although it is mandatory for Div 1 and Div 2 only. Soccer Chelsea strongly supports this training, because it improves the skill level of our soccer players. Certification courses are held over a weekend and have both written and practical components. The cost per course is $ 95 for S2 and $ 110 each for S3 and S7, which Soccer Chelsea will reimburse (full fee for returning coaches, and 50% for new coaches, with the possibility of retroactive reimbursement for coaches returning the following year). If coaches take more than one course annually, each course will be funded at 50% of the usual rate, with the possibility of reimbursement over subsequent years.
The courses are offered in French through the Association de Soccer de l'Outaouais (ARSO). Tentative dates are shown below, however, you must refer to the ARSO website for actual dates (in case they change). Please indicate when you register that you would like this course in English. If there are enough participants, they will offer the course in English.
To register, go to Association de Soccer de l'Outaouais (ARSO), complete form and deliver payment to their office.
There must be at least 15 participants to run the course, so if you're interested, you must register with ARSO ASAP!
Refer to the FSQ Coach Training Map that outlines overall coach certification levels.
