RESPECT IN SPORT

Respect in Sport is an online course that takes about 3 hours to complete. You can leave and then resume the course so it does not need to be completed in one sitting. Please visit https://ontariosoccer.respectgroupinc.com/ to begin. There is a fee to take the course (~$35). If pre-approved KDSC coaches will be reimbursed the cost of the course if they provide a copy of the receipt and the certificate of completion to club@kemptvillesoccer.com.

MAKE ETHICAL DECISIONS

We will be running an MED course on Thursday May 18 in the evening. Details to be finalized. Please contact club@kemptvillesoccer.com for more information.

Unlike in past years, coaches only need to take the age appropriate course.  So, if you are coaching U12 boys or older, for instance, then you only need to take Soccer For Life and MED and Respect in Soccer.  You do not need to take the courses for the earlier stages.

Requirements and Recommendations 

Competitive Coaches and Assistant Coaches who have completed the old Community Certificate (Senior) need to only complete the Respect in Soccer course to coach.

New Competitive Coaches and Assistants will be required to complete the appropriate coaching course within the new community coaching pathway. 

U9 - U12

Development Team Coaches and Assistants require the new ”Learn To Train” course with Respect In Soccer & the MED (Make Ethical Decisions) or completion of the previous “Senior Community Certificate” (Child, youth and senior) and Respect In Soccer.

U13 and older

Competitive Coaches and Assistants require the new “Soccer for Life” course with Respect In Soccer & the MED (Make Ethical Decisions) orCompletion of the previous “Senior Community Certificate” (Child, youth and senior) and Respect In Soccer.
 

House League Coaches

While it is not mandatory for House League coaches to take these courses, we always encourage our house league coaches attend the OSA courses and receive as much training as possible, since they are responsible for initiating the development of the young players in the club. Player Development doesn`t begin at U9, it begins when at the first kick of a soccer ball.

Respect In Soccer

In December of 2011 the Board of The Ontario Soccer Association determined that all competitive coaches in the province must meet certain minimum standards in order to be granted permission to coach at a competitive level.

All competitive-level coaches must complete the “Respect in Soccer” program by April 15th before the current outdoor season.

At KDSC, this extends to all Development Team coaches.

Make Ethical Decisions

MED is offered in the following formats to increase accessibility to complete the module.
