Women’s Coach

Development Program

Proudly supported by Go NB

About The Program

The Women’s Coach Development Program (WCDP) is relaunching in 2024 with a focus on development within the coaching ranks of Women and Girls throughout New Brunswick. Football New Brunswick (FNB) is excited to work alongside several other Provincial Sport Organizations as well as Coach NB to bring a complete development opportunity that extends beyond athletes.
FNB is commited to the growth of Women and Girls in football. We believe the offseason is a perfect opportunity to learn, refine, and build technique and fundamentals.

The WCDP is highly competitive, so putting together a strong application that highlights qualifications, experience, and commitment is crucial for success. FNB will have seven (7) primary coaches One (1) for each position QB, RB, WR, OL, DL, LB, and DB. K/P will not be represented due to the facility limitations of the kick game. Only seven (7) applicants will be selected. Each WCDP candidate will also be assigned a F.I.T. 506 Squad which they will serve as leader and Head Coach for competitive periods and the flag football mini-series. *A General Manager (Team Manager) position can be made available should there be interest.


This program is free to all selected participants. We will provide an honorarium to assist with travel costs, provide coach swag and cover all NCCP training!
