Coaching with the Yukon Soccer Association
The Yukon Soccer Association offers coach training at a variety of levels to those who are prepared to help players gain skill and learn to appreciate the game. A long-time association with the sport is not required to be a valuable component of our programs. What is needed is the desire to work with young people in a respectful and constructive manner so to encourage participation at a level that meets the goal of the player and the association.
The parent who volunteers week nights with one of the Yukon Soccer Association community affiliates is as valuable as the person who takes the time to certify as a coach for the Yukon Soccer Club or takes on the job of preparing elite teams for inter-provincial, national and international competitions.
