  • Teach skills related to the sport.
  • Keep team practices and games organized.
  • Answer questions about the team and season.
  • Encourage family involvement and coordinate parent assistance.
  • Provide a safe and enjoyable environment for all players.
  • Give each child an equal opportunity to participate.

  • Allow all players to play at least half the game.
  • Make necessary phone calls or hold meetings.
