PLEASE NOTE ENHANCES REQUIREMENTS FOR OPDL: Head Coaches must be B Licence certified and Assistant Coaches must be C Licence certified.
Making Ethical Decisions workshop is considered completed regardless if this has been taken in person, online or home study. Successful completion of the EVALUATION is necessary for coach certification in any NCCP Program . Both must be done, workshop and evaluation.
C License Information
The C License is for players aged 11-13, this means a coach can take either Learn to Train or Soccer for Life for access.
If they have a C License, this is training at a higher level for both learn to train and soccer for life.
Therefore if a coach has a C License, they will have either a soccer for life or learn to train to access the course in the first place and do not need to complete both and the C License provides education in more detail for both of these stages of development.
As C License content covers learn to train and soccer for life, it does not cover fundamentals. Therefore any coach coaching U6-U9 Boys or U6-U8 will need to take fundamentals.
