Learning Facilitator Program

The Learning Facilitator Program is a service provided to BC Soccer's Member Organizations and Affiliate Clubs to endorse their own technical leads to become qualified to deliver Grassroots courses to its coaches with an “In-Club Learning Facilitator” model. This initiative provides the flexibility needed for busy organizations to deliver coach training throughout the year according to is needs and schedules. It also supports organizations to help meet the minimum coaching requirements as outlined in BC Soccer’s rules and regulations.

Learning Facilitator Program

Our vision is to empower all organizations to have at least one technical lead designated in each club who has the responsibility to oversee the development of its coaches. This individual would be an ideal candidate to be considered for becoming trained as a BC Soccer Learning Facilitator. Successful applicants endorsed by organizations will undergo the required training which is done online. Once the training is completed, this individual is expected to take an active role in coordinating and delivering the Grassroots courses for their club according to its needs on an annual basis.

If your organization would like to take this opportunity to endorse one of your technical leads to becoming trained as a BC Soccer “In-Club Learning Facilitator”, please contact Rob Csabai, Manager of Coaching Development.

We only accept endorsements from a club official who has the role of either a Club President or an Executive Director.

The endorsed individual (applicant) must have the following to be considered:

  • Minimum Canada Soccer C Licence Certified level certification
  • Submit a valid Vulnerable Sector Criminal Record Check
  • British Columbia resident
  • Playing, coaching and other experience will be taken into consideration

If you are a BC Soccer Member Organization and/or Affiliate Club looking to host a Grassroots course for your coaches, please review the requirements in the Course Host Manual document.

Coaching Mandate

We place a great value on coach education, and it is important to us those coaches who experience BC Soccer’s services are trained by competent and passionate Learning Facilitators explains Rob Csabai, Manager of Coaching Development. 

This promotional video was a call to action to our membership which inaugurated the start of BC Soccer's Learning Facilitator Program in 2016 to enable all clubs to meet the challenge of training their coaches at the Grassroots course levels with an 'In-Club' model.

Please review the Learning Facilitator Program manual for more information and the training requirements.
