What do I need to do to volunteer to coach or manage my child’s team?
Our league depends on volunteers and we are especially grateful for all of the time, energy and commitment our volunteers give! Coaching requirements are set by our parent organization, SoCal. Coaches must complete our risk management protocol which includes a background check, SafeSport training and concussion training.
