Coach Safety Act

All coaches and any parent that will be on the field working with players will need to complete training as pertains to the "Coach Safety Act".  Once coaches and assistants have been chosen the information will be sent to those parents.  If you are considering coaching or helping this year, that information will need to be completed before you are on the field with players.
