The following application is for 2017 Fall Season head coaches and assistant coaches interested in being considered to coach a 2018 Spring Select team.
The online application located at the bottom of this page needs to be completed by registered, active and approved 2017 volunteer coaches or assistant coaches willing to be considered to head coach (not assist coach – head coaches select their assistants) a team for the upcoming 2018 Spring Select Season.
Prior to submission, all applicants must review the 2018 Spring Select Guidelines (PDF) and the below calendar of events. Coaches who cannot work within the 2018 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.
Unknown at this time.
No. New season, new uniforms.
