COACHING A TEAM
If you are interested in coaching a team, please contact your 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.
During the online registration process, parents may request to have their child play with as many friends as they’d like. You may also request 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. You are welcome to create your own team and submit a roster to the Commissioner. If you don't have a team or coach specifically in mind, we will assist in finding a good fit for you.
