Coaching Soccer in Alberta

Vision: Skillfully train, develop, qualify, & support more coaches to be skillful teachers of the game.

Alberta Soccer is committed to the Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) and to delivering coaching education that enhances the development of coaches and most importantly, players.

The LTPD Coach Pathway is divided into two distinct Streams:

  1. Community Stream (community soccer)
  2. Licensing Stream (competitive soccer).

Refer to the menu on your right to learn more about the specific courses offered in each stream.

All coaches must complete the Making Ethical Decisions (MED) multi-sport module including the online evaluation to complete their program. Find more information about this in the FAQ section.
