*Making Headway, Making Ethical Decisions and Respect in Sport are mandatory courses that all coaches need to have taken.  Coaches are only required to have taken the age-specific course that corresponds to the age group they are coaching. 
 
In addition to these courses, the Georgetown Soccer Club requires that all of our coaches have a valid (completed within the past 3 years) police records check with a vulnerable sector screening on file. 
From time to time there may be courses added to this curriculum as determined by Ontario Soccer or our district, Peel Halton.
