Coaches and Managers

What's my commitment?

If you help your team by becoming a Coach your usual time commitment is just 2 hours a week - one hour of training and one hour on match days. This is no more time than any other parent who comes to watch. Your team Manager should take care of the admin side of the team for you. Often, two Under 5 - 7 teams train together.

If you help your team by becoming a Manager you have a bit of organising and admin to do. This should take no more than 1 hour per week.

What training kit do I get?
