Thank you for volunteering to coach! Our SFWELAX program is built upon the efforts of parents and adults, like you, who dedicate their time to making the season great.
The following is some key information that you will want to have handy during the season.
Your first order of business is to identify a team manager. This person will perform a variety of tasks, including email communications with your team, distributing uniforms, and other managerial tasks during your season.
PLEASE EMAIL ME THE NAME AND CONTACT INFORMATION OF YOUR TEAM MANAGER ASAP ( ). We will then make sure he or she has the needed access to the website.
You should plan a parent meeting. This is an opportunity to talk with parents about your expectations, discuss playing time, and talk about your coaching philosophy. Inform parents that the SFWELAX Board is committed to updating the website realtime to answer as many questions as possible.
