Coach Academy Investment

The PSVI Coach Academy is an all-inclusive investment of $1,250.00.

The $1,250.00 total payment from each coach is significantly offset by a discount offered by PacificSport Vancouver Island. We are proud to invest in our dedicated coaches and are confident that their participation in the PacificSport VI Coach Academy will strengthen the regional coaching landscape.

PacificSport Vancouver Island will be happy to work with successful applicants to create payment plans spread over the course of the year-long academy.

Coaches are also encouraged to speak with their local sport organizations to inquire about funding for coach education or scholarships! Many clubs will be happy to help contribute some funds towards coach education.

Thanks to generous support from our partners at Island Savings and True Sport, upon successful completion of the program each coach will receive a minimum $250 rebate (paid by cheque). This is money that can be used at their discretion for their future coaching goals.


Potential applicants are also welcome to email Kevin or Geoff with any questions.
