Junior Coach Development
Junior Coach Development Program
United DFC is committed to providing opportunities for lifelong participation in sport, not limited to playing. UDFC is rolling out a Junior Coach Development (JCD) Program for high-school-age players or interested persons who may wish to develop leadership, pedagogy and coaching skills through soccer.
The program is open to applicants aged 14 - 18 years old.
UDFC's Junior Coach Development Program is a structured theory and on-field experiential program. The program will be a blended experience which will provide virtual and in-person education opportunities for new coaches.
The virtual environment will be hosted in Google Classroom and live theory sessions will be conducted through Google Meets. In addition, all JCD coaches will be provided with opportunities to gain meaningful on-field coaching experience within UDFC's programs.
This opportunity may be used towards collection of volunteer hours and is an excellent way to make an application for Summer employment with UDFC stand out.
Applicants to the program will be expected to commit to the virtual learning program (est. 3 hours bi-weekly) and participating on field for a minimum of 1 session per week.
