  • Selecting the team manager volunteer
All coaches are asked to hold a mandatory meeting for their team prior to the season starting. This meeting is to include all parents, coaches and when possible the Division ACE Coordinator (it may also include any Board member). The purpose of this meeting is for the families to get to know one another and to provide an overview of the coaching philosophy to be executed by the coaches, team goals/objectives, review expectations and identify volunteers as well as to address questions, concerns or suggestions.
