Coaches Wanted

TNLI is always looking for high character value people who are interested in taking on managerial or coaching roles. TNLI splits out the responsibility of the Manager and Coaches as separate positions. We prefer to have all of our teams each have these positions handled independently.

Managers are responsible to organize the team and their activities. They ensure that all the off field and behind the scenes details are in order freeing up the Head and Assistant Coaches to focus on developing the players. The Manager assist the Coaches with on field activities as required.

The Head Coach is completely responsible for all practice and game focus and strategies. They are to spend 100% of their time working on development the players skills sets and unifying the team. For those Head Coaches with appropriate levels of drive and experience, compensation for your time and effort can be agreed upon accordingly.

The Assistant Coach is someone that helps the Head Coach with all practice and game preparations and strategies. Again, based on your level of experience and commitment, compensation for your time and effort can be agreed upon accordingly. 

If you have some interest in potentially taking on one of these position, please contact Coach Caz by cell phone at 516-551-4466 or email teamnitroli@hotmail.com to discuss further.
