NSGSC Junior Coach Program






Objective:


The NSGSC Junior Coach Program is designed to identify and nurture female soccer players (U15 to U18) who demonstrate the desired skills for coaching by providing them the opportunity to gain experience coaching younger teams.

Goals:


i) To increase the opportunity for young women to access the coaching experience.

ii) To support qualified graduating soccer players in their pursuit of coaching development opportunities.

iii) To provide U6-U14 teams with female player role models and to establish mentoring experiences for younger players.

Program Description:

The Junior Coach Program for NSGSC Club athletes (U15-U18) will be aimed at targeting the rich source of potential coaches in the ranks of our graduating soccer players and developing new mentor coach positions to attract these women.  The program matches a Junior Coach with a younger team (U6-U14) and coach.  The program will be structured to meet the needs of both the Junior Coach and team. Junior Coaches selected will be required to take a BC soccer coaching course through the NSGSC to mentor coach with the team. Junior coaches will then begin working with their team as soon as possible in October, once coaching course has been completed.
 
Returning Junior Coaches will be placed with a different team each year to ensure there is fair and even availability for all teams within the club that would like to take advantage of this program.  There will only be 40 Junior Mentor Coaches per year.
