Alberta Soccer is committed to the Long-Term Player Development (LTPD) and to delivering coaching education that enhances the development of coaches and most importantly, players.

To skillfully train, develop, qualify, and support more coaches to be teachers of the game.

  • A way to keep yourself active and in shape.
  • An opportunity to lead and embody important life skills such as organization, time management, work ethic, and people skills.
  • An opportunity to be a respected community leader through soccer.
  • A part time job for the serious coach.
  • A career for the aspiring coach.
