In order to make this program a success, special people called volunteers play a key role. There are many opportunities for you to become involved with the program and although you may be quite busy, please take a moment to look over the registration form and designate areas in which you can help.
Help! Help! Help! Coaching is an area in which we need lots of help. Please sign up on the registration form to either coach or assist your child’s team.
