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
As the Founding Club for the Pacific Soccer Coaching Conference coming up June 5-7 at Fortius in Burnaby
, we are looking at several exciting ventures to tie in with the conference. One that has presented itself through the connections of VUFC Academy Director David Hendry is to bring instructors from the Scottish FA to Vancouver to run the first SFA Children's License
in Canada. To determine the demand for this course we have set up a simple poll and would appreciate if you could take one minute to fill it out. Click here for the poll.
