I Want to Coach
Coaches are an integral part of the soccer landscape. While some coaches start as athletes, most are parents, teachers, sport fans, and community members who want to be a part of a sport they love and make a difference.
Coaching offers enormous benefits for coaches and participants alike. Coaches can:
|Build exceptional planning skills |
|Create engaging activities for participants |
|Help others get active while remaining active themselves |
|Teach important physical skills |
|Promote safety in sport |
|Promote diversity and inclusion |
|Model respectful behaviour and problem-solving |
|Model community-building behaviour |
|Help others improve their performance and build their confidence |
|Learn effective ways to persuade, offer constructive criticism, and provide advice |
Where can I find a team to coach?
If you would like to get involved in coaching, your first step is to connect with your local SSA Member Organization
I would like to gain coaching knowledge and tools.
If you are new to coaching and would like to receive coaching education, attending a community coach workshop is the place to start. Find out which workshop is for you, dependent on the age and stage you’re coaching.
