Coach Status Check

The following databases hold the records of coach certification levels obtained over the years.  The BC Soccer database records all coaches who took their certification in British Columbia up to and including the B License Part 1 (B Provincial) and the Canada Soccer database records the B License Part 2 (B National) and higher.

Please refer to the other tabs if you are looking for your NCCP transcript or if you have any questions surrounding foreign coaching equivalency or the exemption process. For coaches who took a coaching course in another province outside of British Columbia, please check with the respective provincial contact person.

The BC Soccer Certification Database contains the record of all coaches who have successfully completed BC Soccer courses in the past. This database is updated monthly with the various search options by last name, by city and by course level.

Community Stream: Active Start, Fundamentals, Learn to Train and Soccer for Life

Licensing Stream: C License and Provincial B Licence

*All other courses are recorded by Canada Soccer, such as, the National B License, A License, Childrens License, etc.

The Canada Soccer Coaching Certification Database is a listing of all coaches who have successfully completed the following courses: B National License, A National License and those who received approved foreign coaching certification equivalency.
