Advanced Competition Coaching

Coaching expectations for our AC teams:

  • We grade coaches in the following criteria :
    • Playing experience
    • Coaching experience
    • Coaching qualifications
    • Other related qualifications and experience
  • Number of Practices :
    • Tier 2 teams practice 2-3 times a week for an average of 11 months, with breaks throughout the season to make sure players do not burn-out. Team training is also off-set with squad training.
    • Tier 3 & 4 teams practice 1-2 times a week for an average of 9 months throughout the year with scheduled breaks.
  • Playing time expectations:
    • There is zero playing time guaranteed at any of our AC teams, it is generally based on the following :
      • Attendance, attitude, ability of player and team needs
      • Most of our players (at all levels and age groups) are multi-sport athletes, which we support. It is expected that at the older tier 2 age groups, that soccer be the first priority in sports.
