Why Coach?

There are many reasons to become a coach:

  • A rewarding way to give back to the game and stay involved.

  • A way to keep yourself active and in shape.

  • An opportunity to lead and to teach important life skills such as organization, time management, work ethic, and people skills.

  • An opportunity to be a respected leader in our community through soccer.

  • An opportunity to progress to be a certified coach. 

  • community stream coaching is a stepping stone on the path to a coaching license. 

The bottom line: Our program is run by volunteers. Without coaches we don't have teams. You can help make the difference, provide a fantastic experience to our youth, and build strong community ties.

Our Commitment
To Your Coaching Success
  • TRSA is committed to supporting our coaches and providing them with knowledge and access to training to feel the confidence and enjoyment of coaching. 

  • TRSA offers orientations and manuals to our coaches.

  • Our coaches are supported to attend training courses paid for by TRSA.

  • As the age level increases, completed training courses become mandatory, and are often transferrable outside of soccer.

The Coaching Pathway

TRSA supports the Coaching Pathway that is organized around the Long Term Player Development model as outlined by the Alberta Soccer Association and Canada Soccer.

The Coaching Pathway is implemented through coach training workshops that are designed for the age and stage of development a coach is coaching (i.e. if coaching U11 players, a coach completes the Learning to Train workshop).

Community Stream Coach Training Stages:

  1. Active Start (U4-U5)

  2. FUNdamentals (U7-U9)

  3. Learning to Train (U11-U15)

  4. Soccer for Life (U15-U19+)​
