The purpose of a coach mentorship program is to supplement the certification process. This is done by giving coaches the opportunity to expand their knowledge of the game and gain further confidence in their coaching abilities. It also gives coaches the opportunity to practice their craft on a consistent basis.

A soccer-specific and sport science approach will be introduced throughout this process.

The Coach Mentorship Program will have a very easy implementation process and will begin in October 2013. The program will be available to all coaches and delievered by the following methods:

1. Seminar (practical and theoretical sessions) with TD and Staff

2. Guest Speaker Sessions

3. Monthly Newsletter
