When you become a member of the NSCAC you will receive these benefits:
The Journal for Soccer Coaches & Newsletters
You will receive the NSCAC Newsletter monthly or bi-monthly. We’re proud of our Journal and Newsletters as most of our writers are Canadian and we hope to continue to include articles & opinions from member coaches in future issues. Due to the costs associated with creating, publishing, and printing a journal we have discontinued the printed version of The Journal for Soccer Coaches for the near future.
A digital version of the first two issues of The Journal for Soccer Coaches which was published in Spring/Winter 2017/18 can be found on this website under The Journal for Soccer Coaches.
We are always looking for content for our newsletter from our members. If you have any articles, drills, practice sessions, or even videos that you would like to share with fellow coaches, please send them to us and we will consider including them in one of our future newsletters.
“MEMBERS ONLY” PORTION OF OUR WEBSITE
By being a member, you will be allowed into the “MEMBERS ONLY” section of our website. You will receive an e-mail from us explaining how to get access to this exclusive area. Once you set up your account in the “members only” section, you’ll need to wait until we verify that you are a paid member. You’ll get an e-mail allowing you access to that area.
Enter the “members only” portion of the website to take advantage of some of the benefits of becoming a member.
