Coach and Player Development Resources

Canada Soccer Grassroot Standards  

The Canada Soccer Grassroots Standards have been designed to create the best possible learning and development environment for all young players in Canada. The Grassroots Standards are based on global best practice while taking into account the realities of Canadian soccer. As adults, it is our responsibility to ensure that all of our children are able to enjoy soccer in a safe, fun, accessible, inclusive and developmentally appropriate environment. Given the uniqueness of our country - where geography, climate and infrastructure can be vastly different from one region to the next - it will not always be possible to implement the Grassroots Standards. Do your best to implement the Grassroots Standards while understanding that some standards may not be possible to achieve in your region.

Coaching Women and Girls Resources

Keeping Girls in Sport was developed in partnership with Canadian Tire Jumpstart, the Coaching Association of Canada, and the Canadian Association for the Advancement of Women in Sport. This 90-minute interactive online course is worth two (2) PD points toward NCCP maintenance of certification. Keeping Girls in Sport helps coaches, mentors, and leaders understand what girls need to feel included, be successful, and stay active.
 
Is a global initiative that aims to keep girls from dropping out of sport because of body image concerns. This free resource gives coaches the tools to help girls shift the conversation from what their bodies look like to what their bodies can do - empowering them with a lifetime of confidence. It covers three key topics: 
1. Understanding body image
2. Tackling negative body image
3. Promoting body confidence
 
The Rally Report shows that sport participation levels for Canadian girls are much lower than boys.  Among girls who have participated in sport, there is a dramatic dropout rate observed with 1 in 3 girls leaving sport by late adolescence. By comparison, the dropout rate for teenage boys (aged 16-18) is only 1 in 10. Sport participation rates for Canadian girls decline steadily from childhood to adolescence with as many as 62% of girls not playing sport at all.This study is designed to inform, educate, and inspire action across Canada and to keep girls in sport.
