ALL coaches must have completed a background check on file before the season begins. If you have not had a background check through our system in the past two years, you will receive an email requesting that you complete one at this time.
At least one person at every practice must be CPR certified. See CPR resources below.
Note: For our purposes, Practice Partners are considered "Coaches" as well as Head and Assistant Coaches and Site Liaisons. In areas where we provide instructions or information to Coaches, we are including Practice Partners in that group.
