Head Coaching (Step-by-step requirements/instructions)

Required Education

We are dedicated to providing a trained instructor to each player. As such, and in order to ensure full insurance coverage for the coach, head coaching candidates are required to take two training classes before leading a team. A third course, concussion training, while optional, is strongly encouraged:

Training Course Required? Live or Online?
 Safe Haven Yes Either
 U-6, U-8, or U-10 Coaches Training
 Concussion Awareness No, but
strongly encouraged
