Coaching Application Process

Those wishing to coach are asked to complete the Coaching Application and send it to the Boys Traveling Director by the end of August each year.  Interviews will be arranged for eligible coaches and final coaching selections determined after tryouts.

Head coaches and all assistants must complete the applicable Trusted Coaches online training to be eligible to coach.  

And most importantly...coaches need to be able to relate to the kids and make basketball fun!
