Canadian Soccer Akkademy is an official ISSA licensed deliver. We started our license in March 2014. Our first goal is to break the myth in Canada that you need cones, bibs and a particular number of drills to hold a training session/camp or event for your people to develop and learn the beautiful game of soccer.
Having coaches in Ukraine as well as England whilst becoming a license FA coach I embarked on a new challenge, to change the mentality of those that believe the saying ‘you can’t teach that stuff’. Anything can be taught. Having met Darren Laver in 2011, I was blown away and inspired. Combining both his business model and his love and passion for the game, I felt we had and still have a lot in common.
I have coached soccer the standard way for several years running camps, local church teams and setting up an academy in Ukraine. During this time I was searching for that extra detail that would make coaching more exciting, more rewarding and also much more enjoyable for the children.
My aim is to lay the foundations and ignite the love for soccer in Canada. Now becoming a licensee in Canada comes as a great privilege as I am now provided with everything I need to not only delver high impact, exciting sessions, but confidently know that everything I do has a purpose. Also having access to bring the best street players in the world to my events is a huge benefit as now the young players i coach can be engaged and inspired.
The Canadian Soccer Akkademy is not been set up to take over existing coaching methods, but be complimentary to an already great set up. I am now working with John Clubb, manager of Grassroots development for Alberta Soccer Association assisting in the developing the future game.
