BC Soccer’s objective is to provide a service that contributes to increasing the number of female coaches across the province by promoting regional Grassroots Coach Education Program coaching courses exclusively for females. The program is divided into the online theory (Part 1) coaches take as a pre-requisite to register for the on-field practical workshop (Part 2). Member organizations can request to host an on-field practical workshop delivered in a 100% female environment.
If you are a female coach over the age of 16 and are interested in taking a Grassroots Coach Education Program coaching course, then please contact your soccer organization to see when they are planning to host an on-field practical workshop. Please note that you must complete the respective online theory (Part 1)* as a pre-requisite before registering for the on-field practical workshop (Part 2). Registration details for both parts can be found here.
If you are a member organization interested in hosting a female only and female led Grassroots on-field practical workshop**, please log in to your host account and when setting it up, please indicate that it is female only. Click here.
*There is a fee associated with the online theory made payable directly to Canada Soccer when registering ($20-30 per course level).
**BC Soccer will cover the female Learning Facilitator fees associated with the on-field practical workshop only and based on the availability of our female leads. Organizations are responsible for booking the facility, the cost for field rental and providing the required equipment for the event and can also apply for funds to offset costs as part of our Grants Program.
