COACHING A TEAM
If you are interested in coaching a team, please contact a FB Sports league Commissioner directly. You can also sign up to coach during the registration process. Prior to the start of every season there will be a coaches' meeting for both experienced and novice coaches to discuss plays, defenses, strategy, rules, etc. Coaches will also have access to playbooks and video tutorials created by Drew Brees.
NOTE: This particular league is associated with a church outreach ministry. Head coaches will be required to have made a personal commitment to Jesus Christ and will be responsible for sharing a small provided devotional with their players midway during practices. If you do not meet the requirements to head coach, you are welcome to serve as an assistant coach.
During the online registration process, parents may request to have their child play with multiple friends. We DO NOT accept requests for a specific coach. We'll try our best to accommodate requests, but there are no guarantees.
Our goal is to create balanced and competitive teams while accommodating as many team requests as possible. If you have specific medical needs we will assist in finding a good fit for you.
