Saratoga-Wilton's player registrations have steadily increased since our inception while the number of coach volunteers has plateaued. The effect of this is is that we wind up with fewer teams than we ought to have with more players on them. Larger teams lead to fewer on-field opportunities for each player. To fix this, we need you! Ideally our player to coach ratio is 4:1 so by volunteering you're providing playing opportunities for 4 players!
No prior coaching experience is necessary to coach with SWYB. Typically, we will hold a coach information session each year to go over expectations, teach some basic drills, and go over the rules of the game.
In the interest of player safety and regulatory compliance, all coaching volunteers must pass a background check in the past 2 seasons.
Our Rec program head coaches are selected by the Board of Directors on the advice of the Division Coordinator based on the following criteria (where applicable):
Head coaches can select up to 2 assistant coaches to fill out their coaching staff.
