This is not a mandatory coaching session

If you are new to coaching and would like help setting up a practice Bob has over 20 years of coaching experience. 

All adults that want to coach a team will need to have a license & complete risk management.


WVSL we will be providing all licensed coaches with identification cards so that we can identify the coaches that have gone through this licensing program.


If a parent is coaching a team without a license they will be told by the referee or League official to sit down and enjoy the game as parents.


So if you have a parent on your team that helps you or likes to act as a coach during the games they will need to be licensed or they will need to sit down and enjoy the game with the other parents, (you can have a Max of 3 coaches per team)
