Facilitating Coaching Courses and Workshops
Mentoring of Recreational and Competitive Coaches
Providing support to clubs regarding technical aspects of soccer
Overseeing the development of elite and recreational soccer players
The West Regional Technical Director has a Technical Advisory Group that provides advisement and support on technical aspects to assist the continued development and improvement of soccer in the region.
West Region Soccer encompasses areas from Nackawic, Millville, Minto, Douglas, Fredericton, New Maryland, Oromocto, and Gagetown. Plans are currently underway to establish more clubs in other areas of the West Region.
