FIFA Grassroots Course Participants Return to Their Communities to Educate Coaches

More than 25 participants completed Western Canada’s first ever FIFA Grassroots Course

More than 25 FIFA Grassroots Course participants returned to their communities this week after successfully completing Western Canada’s first ever FIFA Grassroots Course.  The course participants will take the skills and experiences that they learned from the course to help educated coaches, parents, and players within their local communities and surrounding areas.

“ It was great to see many of BC Soccer’s Grassroots tutors as well representatives from other provinces so engaged in both the in class discussions as well as the on field component,” said Andrew Haines, Grassroots Coordinator. “All of these coaches will now head back to their communities where they can take the experiences and skills they learned in this course and teach them to coaches in their local soccer clubs which will benefit players across British Columbia.”

Burnaby Lake West, Fortius Sport and Health, and the North Shore Indoor Soccer Facility were the hosts to the successful four day FIFA Grassroots Course which was facilitated by FIFA instructor Marcos Tinoco.  FIFA, Canada Soccer, and BC Soccer partnered to help implement the course which covered various topics of player development with a focus on age specific training techniques at the grassroots level.

“The delivery of the course was superb and we can’t thank FIFA, Canada Soccer, and the BC Soccer staff enough for all of the work that was put in to make this course such a success,” said Roger Barnes, President of BC Soccer. “Grassroots and Coach education are key focuses for BC Soccer and hosting such a successful course helps stress the importance of these focuses.”

FIFA’s Grassroots course directly aligned with BC Soccer’s strategic plan and the course will help reach BC Soccer’s Coach Education objectives as well as their strategic goal of increasing technical support to grassroots clubs across the Province.

The grassroots tutors who completed the course will return to their respected communities to help deliver similar courses to local coaches and players which will benefit soccer communities across the entire province.  Working with soccer clubs across British Columbia, BC Soccer has been able to facilitate the delivery of more than 75 grassroots coaching courses this year and they look to continue to work with these clubs to help educate many more coaches across British Columbia.

“It was an amazing experience to have Grassroots tutors from across the province all come together for this course,” said Chris Cerroni, BC Soccer Grassroots Tutor and Technical Director for Central City Breakers. “ Having everyone come together really aided in getting all of us on the exact same page and I definitely look forward to returning to Surrey to deliver a similar course to new and experienced coaches alike”
