Benefits of Coaching or Assisting

Not only are you allowing more children to play, you also get to:
  • Choose the day and location of practice
  • Choose the uniform color/style
  • Choose your assistant coach (who may be the parent/guardian of your child's best friend) (only available in 10U division and younger)
  • Choose the (final) name of the team
  • Coach two teams and your games will be scheduled so there are no conflicts
A drawing will be held at every division’s coaches’ meeting up to 12 and Under and two lucky head coaches will get their children’s fee returned to them. No experience is necessary and all training is provided. Learn what others find to be such a rewarding experience.
