Coaching Standards + Education Pathway
Coach Education Pathway
As the governing body for soccer in Canada, Canada Soccer is responsible for training coaches from grassroots to national team level. In order to meet this challenge, Canada Soccer has developed the Canada Soccer Pathway (LTPD)
and tailored the Coach Education Program
to this model. As a result, a two-streamed education program has been developed in conjunction with the NCCP to meet the needs of both developing coaches and the sport itself.
The Streams through which a coach may enter and/or advance through are the Community Coach Stream and the Licensing Stream. Each of these Streams include a number of workshops designed to prepare coaches for working with players in a specific stage of development as outlined in the Long Term Player Development (LTPD) Model.
