Candidates will be able to complete the theory portion at home, and then participate in the on-field component once restrictions are eased.

BC Soccer has opened registration for its 2021 C Licence program. Since the coronavirus pandemic, BC Soccer has offered the Community Stream theory component online for coaches across the province and now we are pleased to make the C Licence “Theory” available in this e-learning format as well.

“Providing coaches with flexible learning is key for ongoing development especially during this pandemic,” said Rob Csabai, BC Soccer’s Manager of Coaching Development. “Our aim is to continue serving the needs of coaches, clubs and its players through this coach education platform.”

Since the introduction of the C Licence program in 2016, BC soccer has trained nearly 300 coaches at this level which is the gateway to Canada Soccer’s Licencing Stream Pathway. Coaches who complete the C Licence online theory component (part 1) will be eligible to register for on-field component (part 2) once Covid restrictions have been lifted and it is safe to return to in-person workshops (TBC).
