JUNIOR COACH MENTORSHIP PROGRAM
PROGRAM MANAGER: Nour Fathy
PROGRAM DESCRIPTION: Coastal FC believes that by having players help with the coaching process they will not only develop leadership skills but also evolve into the club's future coaches. Junior coaches work with staff coaches in the Academy Programs, Cubs Program, Champions Program as well as various camps and other special programs.
The Program will consist of mentorship, certification, and training over the duration of the season using a combination of on-field support for the Mentoree with the assigned Mentor. This will allow our older players (U15 and older) the ability to transition from players into coaching roles through the club. Their involvement will be based through academy programs, Coastal Cubs program, Spring and Summer Break Camps while under the guidance of their assigned mentor. Mentoree’s will be required to work through completing the following courses through the new Canada Soccer Grassroots Coaches Program (Active Start, Fundamentals, Learn to Train). They will also be required to complete 30 hours of volunteering as part of the program.
