EMSA District and Ontario Soccer through Canada Soccer have finalized the team official (coaching) certification requirements for the 2023 Outdoor Soccer season. For Competitive teams the standards will need to be in place before the applicable team official can be added to the final team roster. For recreational teams the home club is responsible for ensuring the standards are in place for all coaches and are subject to audit verification from both the District and Ontario Soccer. More information can be found at: http://www.emsadistrict.com/DisplayPage.aspx?PageID=5072
For reference we have included the summary chart below that is also available on the District Website. Note that any questions regarding coaching qualification requirements should go to your club representative first. If they are not able to answer your inquiry they can than contact the District on your behalf.
