Soccer for Life course in March
VUFC is pleased to announce we will once again offer the CSA/BCSA Long Term Player Development coach education course called Soccer For Life. This course is aimed at U13 to U18 coaches and is necessary for any coach that wants to enter their team in the BCSA A or B Cup competitions. It is also the course that all coaches must take if they want to continue on and take their B Prep course which leads to the B Provincial and B National certification courses.
The course will run March 23, 24, 26 and 27 at University Hill Turf and the Dunbar Lawn Bowling Clubhouse. To register, go to the Coach Centre website
. If you do not have an account there yet you will need to set one up (free). Log in and select the Soccer For Life course offered by Vancouver United FC on these dates. The course is open to VUFC coaches only and the password you will need is VUFC-SFL-2015. Anyone registering with this password who is not a current VUFC coach will be de-registered.
Course instructor: Vladimir Samozvanov
