Ontario Soccer Information Bulletin: Female Coach Mentorship Program
Ontario Soccer is committed to supporting and developing female coaches in Ontario, through creating a professional and successful mentorship program that will respond to the needs and aspirations of the many outstanding female soccer coaches practicing in Ontario, both now and in the years ahead.
The Female Mentorship Program is part of a holistic support system approach and is one more component of Ontario Soccer's commitment to Long-Team Player Development (LTPD),under the guidance of Canada Soccer.
Annually, Ontario Soccer seeks applications for 6-8 mentee coaches. Coaches must be working towards their National B License Part 1 (Provincial B) and National B Part 2 coaching licenses. Successful candidates will be chosen based on their experience, potential, and the recommendations supporting their application.
The selected mentee coaches will be developed in the Ontario Soccer mentorship program, under the guidance of the Female Head Mentor Coach. They will be required to commit to a nine-month program, on a volunteer basis, where they will be develiped to step into a coaching leadership role, as they strive to attain their C License, National B License Part 1 (Provincial B), and National B Part 2.
Mentee Coach Commitments include:
1. Session and game observation (pre and post discussions with Head Mentor Coach)
- Observation will occur at OPDL games and/or C and/or B License courses
2. Plan and deliver moch C and/or B License Sessions
- Topics to be assigned by the Head Mentor Coach and delivery to occur at the mentee coach's home club or academy
3. Attend Female Coaching Workshops
Female coaches who apply for one of the mentee positions, but are not successful, will be invited to attend Ontario Soccer Female Coaching Workshops that will occur throughout 2019.
