"It was during a game midway through the season. We talk about teamwork and respect from the first day of practice. I heard one of our players ask a teammate why they didn't help another player up off the ground. It turned from players asking for help to asking one another why they weren't helping each other. That was awesome."

What Do You Get From Coaching?

You can have fun and make a difference.

Become A Mentor. Make A Real Difference.

Coaches have a tremendous opportunity to influence a child's development. Our players and parents overwhelmingly view coaches as role models to players. You will make a difference.

Have Fun. Meet New People.

The foundation of our program is that kids, parents and coaches have fun above all else. We get the coaches together for social events to build camaraderie and create a welcoming environment.

Coach Development Opportunities

We provide opportunities for coaches to get certified from one of three national governing bodies and support coaches to grow and learn.

What Do We Look For In Coaches?

Coach = Mentor = Impact

Dedication

We look for coaches that are ready to dedicate the time necessary to be an effective coach. This means time preparing and training outside of practice and games.

Commitment To Making A Difference

The power of a coach's influence is an incredible thing. Many people can point to a strong coach in their life as a reason for continuing to play sports.

Role Model

We believe coaches are uniquely qualified to serve as mentors and role models to players.
