Please note that in order to receive your volunteer credits for coaching, you must complete the applicable required coaching clinics for the age group that you are coaching. These will need to be submitted before the end of the regular season. Coach and Manager roles are considered volunteer fulfillment, as well as Assistant Coaches for the year in which they attend their first coaching clinic.
Prior to the season starting you will also be required to have your vulnerable sector check complete, as a requirement to be on the bench. You can request this from our Coaching Director Karlie.
