(November 13, 2018) The Alberta Soccer Grassroots department is pleased to once again launch the application for the 2019 FUNdamentals Festival Program. This community partnership program seeks to build coaching capacity and program support over a three-year period – providing training, resources, and financial support for a community focused event.
With support from Servus Credit Union, Alberta Soccer will provide successful applicants with a grant of up to $2,000 to communities, clubs, and districts who wish to implement the LTPD and PTM plans in their grassroots programming.
The Festivals will teach the preferred training model to coach volunteers – providing practical tools to put this model into practice with U6-U9 players. Alberta Soccer will provide NCCP Training at the FUNdamentals stage of development, support and resources during and after the festival, a $2000 implementation grant for new applicants (and $1000 for returning applicants), plus a $500 coach development honorarium (if event hosting criteria are met).
