Q: Can TD coach any team within their club?
A: It is suggested that the TD should not be listed on AIMS as a coach, but can be listed on the League’s E2E website as a coach for each team, in brackets “TD” should be put after that person’s name. IE: John Doe (TD)
This only applies to Fully Qualified TD’s, not a “TD in progress”.
Q: Can a TD be listed as a TD for more then one club?
A: Yes, only if they are a fully qualified TD.
Q: There is a player that our club would like to have fast tracked, but our club does not have a TD. How do we get this player assessed?
A: For Outdoor 2019 EMSA will allow the fast track form to be signed by a coach that can proof that they have registered for the National B License Part 1 Certified or the TD Diploma. If your club cannot provide this, EMSA can provide you a list of FULLY qualified Technical Directors in our district. Once this is done, a club can choose which TD they would like to contact to make arrangements to have their player assessed. That process will be between the TD and the club.
Q: I am a fully qualified Technical Director, and I would like to be on the EMSA list, how do I go about doing this?
A: To do so, please complete the TD Agreement by Clicking Here and submit it to firstname.lastname@example.org
Q. How many players can we fast track per team?
A. Currently there is no maximum or minimum from OS policy and procedures; however, fast track players should be an exemption not a rule. The district does have the authority to decline a fast track player if it is determined that there is abuse of the fast track forms policy. At this point EMSA requests that ANY player that is fast tracked has an “*” placed by their name on the League’s website to which no more then 4 Fast Track players shall be put on any one game day roster.
Q. As a Technical Director, do we need a coaches card?
A. Yes your club(s) will need to request a coaches card and provide proof of qualifications.
