Ancaster Soccer's Coaching Development Programs
Coach the coach sessions: This is an integral part of our coaching development. Throughout the year our Technical Director runs on field coaching sessions for our own Rep and House League coaches. These sessions are a fantastic resource for our coaches to take advantage of as continual development is key for all of our members.
Coach Evaluations: Our coaches are all evaluated on a two-year cycle to help insure that our players are receiving the best possible instruction and theory in order for them to achieve the levels of play they are capable of.
