Spring Coaching Courses

BC Soccer is now mandating age-appropriate coach training for all coaches.

RYSA will be hosting the Active Start, Fundamentals and Learn To Train courses here in Revelstoke in the month of April.   Check below for the information and dates for each course. 

If our Revelstoke dates do not work for you, these courses are also available in Salmon Arm, Vernon, Kamloops, and Kelowna and RYSA will do its best to assist coaches to attend the appropriate course.

Here is the information about each course:


ACTIVE START -Stage 1- ‘First Kicks’ U4-U6

Date:  Sunday, April 8th, 1:00 - 5:00pm

At this stage, players should participate in stimulating practices and games that develop basic technical skills in a FUN atmosphere. The emphasis should be movement exercises and games that promote a feel for the ball while teaching basic principles of play within a fun but structured setting. Informal games can be set up at the end of practices or as part of a jamboree mixing exercising and games. Play equal time and try all team positions, including goalkeeper, and equal time should be allotted to practices and games.


FUNDAMENTALS -Stage 2- ‘Fun with the Ball’ U7-U9

Date:  Saturday, April 7th, 10:00am - 5:00pm

At this stage, players should participate in stimulating practices and games that develop basic technical skills in a FUN atmosphere. The emphasis should be movement exercises and games that promote a feel for the ball while teaching basic principles of play within a fun but structured setting. Mini game formats are used, ranging from 3v3 to 5v5 and a basic league schedule can be created but no standings should be kept. All players should play equal time and try all team positions, including goalkeeper, and equal time should be allotted to practices and games.


LEARNING TO TRAIN -Stage 3- ‘The Golden Age of Learning’ U9-U12)

Dates:  Saturday, April 14th and Sunday, April 15th: 10:00am - 5:00pm

This stage introduces players to disciplined training and begins to develop their understanding of principles of play alongside their skills practice. Repetitions are important to develop technical proficiency, but creating a fun and challenging environment is still paramount to stimulate learning and promote a love of the game. Game formats can range from 6v6 to 8v8 as players advance through this stage, and again a simple league schedule can be created, but no standings should be kept – the emphasis is still FUN. All players play equal time and try all team positions, including goalkeeping, and the training to competition ratio should be 2 to 3 training sessions for every game.
