BC Soccer is pleased to offer member organizations the opportunity to ensure that their coaches can receive the age appropriate soccer training within the Canada Soccer/BC Soccer coaching pathway.  By offering a more streamlined administrative approach to INVOICING AND FLEXIBLE COURSE DELIVERY MODEL, organizations are more equipped to have their coaches receive coach education.

BC Soccer is committed to the objective of educating coaches in the game of soccer and supports its member organizations who play a pivotal role in its delivery and has enhanced the administration of community coaching courses in the following ways:

  • Develop a flat fee invoicing structure to streamline the payment process for host organizations
  • Offer autonomy to Hosts to charge course participants if they choose
  • Lower the requirement for minimum registration numbers to avoid cancelations
  • Allow a degree of flexibility in the delivery format of coaching courses

In order that coaches can benefit from these coaching services, we have set parameters (minimum and maximums) around the number of participants we require to run a course effectively before they are approved. Some of the general host requirements are listed here below for both soccer community types within our membership called ‘Standard’ and ‘Remote’ categories of organizations.

The Terms and Conditions are outlined in the Course Host Information Package in detail

BC Soccer has introduced a simplified flat fee pay model for member organizations and affiliate clubs who host Community Coaching Courses.

These course fees are based on the respective course levels and on organizations who fall into one of two categories called Standard or Remote found in the Course Host Information Package.  These categories are based on District Association player registration numbers and hosts are billed according to the fee schedule below.
