Due to the number of players, we are unable to accept requests for specific coaches and/or teammates. This also includes picking specific assistant coaches. We are also unable to accept requests for specific practice days/times.
All teams are coached by parent volunteers. Teams will not be formed until each division has enough volunteer head coaches. Once head coaches are assigned, an assistant can be picked from the team roster, should the head coach want/need one. Practice times will be allotted in the order in which volunteers commit to coach. So volunteer early!
