Co-Coach: Each team has at least 2 coaches. The coaches work as partners to provide structure and guidance, encourage the kids, reflect the core values of the program, and get the kids prepared for their tournament.
Team Mentor: Each team requires at least 2 mentors. Mentors commit to attending at least 8 meetings as a coach support person. Additionally, mentors can help with technical skills, teaching core values, planning team field trips, or any other task the coaches need support with.
Program Supporters: We have program-level support needs such as event planning, t-shirt distribution, fundraising, field trip organizing, etc. These tasks would be performed mostly outside of the team meeting times.
COACHES/MENTORS: You are required to attend a 2018 FLL coach/mentor training workshop. (Veteran coaches - you must attend a workshop!) Please check our website for details. Registration for our May 12 workshop will close on May 9. We will host only one makeup so we recommend that all potential coaches and mentors attend the May 12 workshop if they can.
We want to place our volunteers at the level they feel most comfortable so let us know your preference. If you indicate coach as your 2nd or 3rd choice, we will only ask you to coach if we are having difficulty placing your child on a team due to a coach shortage.
The next few questions help us identify good matches in terms of availability, not just for coaches and mentors, but our program supporters. Program supporters are not limited to the team meeting times - we will contact these individuals separately as we move forward with planning.
