Long Term Player Development - coaching resources

Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) is a CSA soccer-specific adaptation of the Long-Term Athlete Development model (LTAD) developed by Canadian Sport Centres.

LTPD is designed to:
1. Promote lifelong enjoyment of physical activity.
2. Provide a structured player development pathway.
3. Describe best practices for elite player development.
4. Create long-term excellence.

Please see the BC Soccer LTPD page and the Canada Soccer LTPD page for more information.

Canada Soccer has released downloadable Coaching Toolkits in support of Long Term Player Development, focusing on Stage 1 (Active Start), Stage 2 (FUNdamentals) and Stage 3 (Learn to Train) - just click the links!


 

UISA league severe weather game cancellation protocol

Occasionally, games may have to be cancelled at the last minute due to severe weather:  snow, unsafe driving conditions, road closures, field closures, and ferry closures.

Unfortunately, cold, wet and windy conditions are a part of fall/winter soccer!

 

In this order:

1. Coaches in the affected communities are to call their Opponent's Coaches.

2. Both team's coaches are to notify their respective players/parents. 

3. Both team's coaches are to notify their Club designate and, if you are the HOME team, ensure that all internal calls are made to notify the: Club Administrator, Club Referee Scheduler and Club Field Scheduler. Please follow your club's internal protocol.

4. Both team’s coaches are to email cancellation notification to UISA Administrator @ UpperIslandSoccerOffice@gmail.com.

5. UISA Administrator to email those affected with further cancellation/rescheduling information, and update UISA website.

  

Please note: 

-If snow/severe wind is in the forecast, it is a good idea to touch base with your opponent’s coach the night before, so you can ensure you have a "game plan" for game day!

- It is good practice for all teams to become familiar with their opposing teams websites to check for field closures. On the UISA website: www.uisoccer.org on the left hand menu, click on "Links".  Links to all Club websites are located here.

- Coaches contact info is also on the UISA website on the left hand menu, click on "Teams".  Filter to desired division and team.  The coaches contact information will be there, phone numbers and email links.

- Also check the UISA website for the status of your games. Once I receive notice of closures or cancellations, I will post these on the website and notify the affected teams.

 

Special Notice - Teams will not be required to travel on the Powell River/Comox ferry to games on days when a wind or storm warning has been posted on any of the three following sites (click to link to the live site):

1) Environment Canada  Weather page for Comox

2) Environment Canada weather page for Powell River
