Premier Youth & Men's Soccer Club
Croatia Norval SC
Croatia Norval House League and Rep League coaches are all volunteers. Those who are interested in becoming a coach must fill out a volunteer coaching application form which can be found on our website. A current Vulnerable Sector Screening is required for all coaches 18 years and older. Police checks are valid for 2 years and can be reimbursed if the original copy is issued to the Croatia Norval Soccer Club. Coaches must be at least 18 years of age.
Coaches will automatically receive their child on their team (if the coach does not have a child they can select one player). If the coach has an assistant coach, then their child will be the child who is coached by that team of coaches.
No previous formal soccer or coaching experience is necessary to volunteer to coach House League. All coaches will be required to complete Coaching Certification provided by Ontario Soccer Association (OSA). Croatia Norval does ask for exemplary commitment, communication, skill development and fair play from all coaches. Croatia Norval does offer further coaching development opportunities and coaches will be guided and supported by the Technical Director and his staff.
