Coaching Courses

In the spring and fall there are Alberta Soccer Association courses in the Edmonton area or online. The courses are part of the Canadian and Alberta Soccer Associations' Long-Term Player Development coaching courses program. ASA requires all coaches to have taken courses to (or above) the level at which they are coaching.

Fort Saskatchewan Soccer pays the course fees for our coaches. If you are taking a course online or attending one, please pay and submit the receipt and course certificate for reimbursement to
