Coach Development

Providing our club coaches with the appropriate skills and knowledge through the provision of training courses for both football specific coaching and also broader player management.

Coaches are a key point of contact for skill and game development knowledge for players, particularly a club’s junior players. It is vital that they are provided with the appropriate support and are given every opportunity to develop their own skills and knowledge of the sport. This will make a coach more confident in their role and enable them to have the desired impact on players.

  • Organising (and ideally subsidising) the appropriate level of coaching courses for each club coach through your Member Federation.
  • Having a high-profile guest coach take our club coaches through a training session.
  • Appoint a Coaching Coordinator to oversee all club coaches.
  • Monthly coach meetings to discuss relevant issues and network ideas.
  • Senior coach to attend junior games and provide feedback to junior coaches.

In Summary, PFC is committed to Long Term Coaching Development aligning with both Canada Soccer and Ontario Soccer in order to provide quality and standard based programs for the Player Development pathway.
