Q - Where do I sign up to Coach and do I need experience?

A - No experience is needed, we are here to help.  There are many drills and practice ideas on
      this site.  Check out the Coach's Dugout.  We will also be hosting
      coach's clinic this year.  Our first goal is to have fun and learn.

       You can indicate on your child's application your willingness to coach and we will contact you as soon as possible.

Q - Player/Coach requests.  Can I request other players and coaches for my child's team?

      are not able to grant all requests.
