2019 Spring Development League Registration is currently OPEN. Follow this link for registration information.
The online application located at the bottom of this page needs to be completed by registered, active and approved 2018 fall season volunteer head coaches or assistant coaches willing to be considered to head coach (not assist coach – head coaches select their assistants) a team for the upcoming 2019 Spring Select Season.
Prior to submission, all applicants must review the 2019 Spring Select Regional Guidelines (PDF) and the below calendar of events. Coaches who cannot work within the 2019 Spring Select Guidelines or the outlined timelines, should refrain from submitting an application.
Particular attention should be paid to the following paragraph in the guidelines:
C. No player shall be issued an invitation to play prior to completion of their team’s fall season (including the team’s Winter Tournament play). Coaching candidates that prematurely recruit or contact players and their families prior to try-outs and/or the official selection process shall be considered tampering with or distracting players on opposing teams moving into or participating in Winter Tournament. Such activities shall be subject to disciplinary action by the Spring Select committee up to and including disqualification as a coaching candidate.
If you are engaging in this behavior, stop now or you will be barred from participation in Spring Select. Making promises to players and families about issues which you have no control or authority causes hard feelings and disappointment for many. Don’t be that coach. Focus should be on your fall team, they are your first and main priority.
The region has not decided. However, the region strives to strike the balance between player development, competitiveness, volunteer availability and qualifications. Generally, there must be a compelling reason for a second team to be formed in a division.
There are more than enough capable and motivated players and more than enough capable, motivated and engaged volunteers and parents to field more than one team.
No. Because incorrect information can be distributed and inappropriate recruiting and pressuring of coaches on player may occur.
No. Selections are made with the best interests of the program in mind and after lengthy debate and vote.
Play includes regular and sometimes extensive travel based on location of tournaments. Season games for U10 to U14 will be in Redlands, Mountains, Hemet, Nuevo and possibly others regions nearby. U16 & U19 might travel further away.
No. New season, new uniforms.
This online application is the only manner which coaching applications will be accepted; there will be no paper forms. Multiple applications are not necessary. Do not submit more than one application.
