Team formations begin once registration has been closed (mid-to-late June) at which time a coach will be assigned. Please know that we need a "cleared" head coach for each team and if there is no coach there is no team. All our coaches are volunteers. See "Coaching Information" below.
A coach must be identified and then cleared before we can assign them a team. Initial contact from your player's coach should occur between the end of July to early August. Contact from your coach will be by an email, text or a call. To help reduce delays in this initial contact, please be sure to list your contact information clearly printed on the registration form.
You can helping by getting cleared to be an Assistant Coach or a Team Manager. Both of these positions are needed to ensure a successful season for your player and their team.
Remember these are kids this is just a game, so just be an encouraging parent, let them have fun and never coach from the sidelines.
Don't ever forget that your player's coaching staff are all volunteers and they deserve your respect and support.
All our coaches must pass a background and fingerprint check. Please reach out to our Director of Coaching via email and express your interest to coach. It is always better to get the process started now than later.
With COVID still apart of our lives we encourage all our coaches to take online courses to assist them with an understanding for the position, the game and the player. We will reimburse all coaches for securing a certificate or passing course once proof of completion has been provided. You can start with the free course "Introduction To Grassroots Coaching"; which will be a standard for all new and existing coaching and their staff.
Please reach out to your recreational director of coaching at email@example.com for further details.
