Dear Ottawa TFC soccer players,
Our club is currently recruiting coaches to help out with the 2020 Ottawa TFC Grassroots Program for U4-U8 players. In past years, the program has run well, but we are looking to make it even stronger.
If you are interested in coaching with us this summer, please consider the following eligibility criteria:
- 12 - 19 years of age
- Minimum 2 years coaching experience or related experience working with young children
- Minimum 3 years competitive playing experience and demonstrated soccer ability.
- Available Friday evenings from 5 - 8 PM
There will also be an additional opportunity to coach the Grassroots on Tuesday evenings. It is important that you express your interest on the application form for these additional nights/programs.
Enthusiasm and commitment are key for this coaching job! The kids are a lot of fun and the reason why this program runs so well each year is because all coaches show great enthusiasm and positive energy at every session.
Please note that priority will be given toward experienced coaches and those who demonstrate the required abiliy, enthusiasm and energy. For 2020, we have introduced a new training system for coaches comprised of different levels ability, which are associated with increased responsibilities and associated compensation, ie:
“Grassroots coach level 1” - beginnger (volunteer)
“Grassroots coach level 2” - intermediate (2+ years experience)
“Grassroots coach level 3” - advanced (2+ years experience, licensed, passed coaching evals)
The details of this new program will be discussed at an orientation meeting. Essentially, the system will give a chance for young coaches to develop through the ranks on a step by step basis. As they move up and gain experience and ability, more opportunities will be afforded to them.
