BCSA Female Coaching Framework
BC Soccer announced in March 2021 its new Female Coaching Framework which is a key objective of the 2024 strategic plan. The framework is designed to support female coaches with the aim to increase the number of female coaches at all levels and improve their ongoing development. BC Soccer is committed to creating opportunities for women to develop their leadership skills. This framework has three components including the Female Coach Mentorship Program, the creation of a Female Development Lead position within the Soccer Development Department along with offering and hosting Female Only Participant and Female Led Community Stream coaching courses, once the BC Health Authority eases restrictions allow courses to be offered.
