Coach Development

To develop the best coaches at Bays United, we encourage all coaches to follow the coaching pathway that is set out by Canada Soccer and BC Soccer. Bays is pleased to offer this training in-house.

  • Coaches for U6-U12 teams MUST complete the age appropriate course(s) even if you have a higher level of certification (ie. Soccer for Life, B pretest, C License, B License or A License).
  • Head coaches for U13 to U18 teams MUST have their Soccer for Life certification.

The theory portion of the following courses are currently available online through BC Soccer.  No in-classroom or on-field courses are available at this time.
