Being A Head Coach- Forming A Team
For Head Coaches, please let families know that you are coaching and you want their child to play for you. Ask the families to record your name on the registration form in the blank for Preferred Coach, name, phone and email address. Be sure to recommend to the families to enter the names of other players who will be on your team. Please also be sure to send your families to the correct website to register as Chapelwood and Memorial Presbyterian have their own separate registration process.
Being An Assistant Coach
For Assistant Coaches, if you know who your Head Coach will be, ask him if he needs an Assistant Coach volunteer and, if so, indicate on your child's registration that you have volunteered to be an Assistant Coach. If you do not know who the Head Coach will be, or what team your child will be on, but you are willing to be an Assistant Coach, please check the box indicated when you register.
If you are later named Head Coach, you will be required to pass a background check. The submissions of each Head Coach or Assistant Coach will be checked to ensure compliance.
