In addition to the SSA Soccer specific Coaching Standards, all Soccer Coaches in Saskatchewan are required to complete the following training:
Respect in Sport for Activity Leaders is a required training program for all registered coaches and team personnel of provincial sport governing bodies in Saskatchewan. Respect in Sport (RiS) for Activity Leaders is a tool designed to assist leaders to identify and respond to abuse, neglect, harassment, and bullying.
By successfully completing the NCCP Make Ethical Decisions training, coaches will be fully equipped to handle ethical situations with confidence and surety. MED is a requirement for the FUNdamentals coaching workshop through to the A Licence workshop.
Concussions can occur while participating in any sport or recreation activity. Since the circumstances under which a concussion can be sustained are so varied, it's important for all coaches, parents/coaches/guardians, and athletes to be aware of the signs, symptoms, and what to do if a concussion occurs. The eLearning modules teach you how to recognize the signs and symptoms of a concussion - and also how to respond.
Coaches Association of Saskatchewan is the voice for coaching in Saskatchewan and a leader in coach development and recognition, providing quality programs and services to Saskatchewan coaches at all levels.
