If you are interested in being a coach, please annotate on the form and we will contact you about assisting with tryouts etc. Note, coaches will be picked after tryouts, so volunteering does not guarantee a slot on the teams.
E-mails will be sent to the people who pre-register with additional information closer to the tryout date.
