"BSA is a fantastic community where all abilities and backgrounds can feel at home. Luckily this also applies to parent coaches like me! !Rain or shine, time spent on the field with my son and other aspiring young footballers is a simple, yet indispensable, joy that I never want to miss out on".

BSA Online Volunteer Coach Training

Why does the BSA require Volunteer Coach Training?

The Brussels Sports Association, ASBL is committed to providing high quality, fun and safe sports programming for the youth that participate in our programs. The training is NOT designed to provide certification in first-aid or child-safeguarding, but rather to provide a basic overview and a baseline for appropriate behavior and interaction for our dedicated volunteers as they work closely with children and their families. Any questions should be directed to the BSA Managing Director.

When should a volunteer coach complete their training?

Our coaches are required to complete the training at the beginning of the first sports season for which they volunteer each year. Coaches will complete the training once per school year. For example, if you volunteer to coach Fall Soccer - you will be asked to complete the training in the fall, but you do not have to complete it again if you coach Winter Soccer or Spring Soccer. You will, however, complete the training again if you volunteer to coach soccer during the following school year. In other words, the training clock resets every school year.

What is included in the BSA Volunteer Coach Training?

The Volunteer Coach Training includes a series of short publicly available videos on basic first-aid, a series of child-safeguarding videos provided by the International School of Brussels, and information on BSA's policies. We have aimed to include videos created by reputable organizations. All videos are in English. Volunteers will need about 45 minutes to watch all of the videos and complete the final questionnaire and quizzes.
