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.
Become A Coach
Coaching soccer with Yukon Soccer Association offers the possibility of taking your passion for sport and giving it to a young person who will hopefully keep it the rest of their lives. The Yukon Soccer Association has minimum standards that anyone who works with young people must meet.
All coaches must have a current Criminal Record Check on file with Yukon Soccer Association or an affiliate office.
They must also demonstrate the principles of fair play and individual respect as outlined by the local affiliate’s rules and in the broadest sense, the goals of FIFA (Federation of International Football Associations).
Coaches selected to coach teams attending major competitions like North American Indigenous Games, Arctic Winter Games, Western Canada Games, and Canada Summer Games are expected to attain appropriate Canada Soccer Association and National Coaches Certification Program certificates.
