FUNdamentals Festivals: Preferred Training Model

With the support of Servus Credit Union, Alberta Soccer supports several new and returning FUNdamentals Soccer Festivals each Spring/Summer season. The FUNdamentals Festival Program is developed to support communities, for up to three years, to implement the Preferred Training Model and Long-Term Player Development within their communities.

The term ‘Festival’ is used to support the coming together of communities for the purpose of playing. The Preferred Training Model is the template that is used to support the coach training, player participation and parental engagement within this program. The program provide each host community the following:

  • NCCP FUNdamentals Training for 8-16 Volunteer Coaches

  • Afternoon Festival for 80 U9 children run by Volunteer Coaches
  • Up to $2,000 grant for new communities and up to $1,000 for returning communities who meet requirements

  • $500 Coach Honorarium Grant for Community
