COACHING A TEAM
Interested in coaching??? Please register as a coach by clicking on the link under the Mandeville page.
Prior to season start, we will hold a mandatory coaches' meeting. This meeting is for both, experienced and novice coaches, to review and discuss plays, in game scenarios, rules, etc... This is also the time that you will receive equipment for your team (flags, footballs, mouthpieces).
As a coach, you will have access to our coaches' portal, with informative playbooks and video tutorials created by Drew Brees. You will also have the ability to communicate with your team, set practices, review game schedule and more.
During the online registration process, parents may request to have their child play with as many friends as they’d like. You may also request a specific coach. We'll try our best to accommodate requests, however there are no guarantees.
Our goal is to create balanced and competitive teams while accommodating as many team requests as possible. You are welcome to create your own team and submit a roster to the Commissioner. If you don't have a team or coach specifically in mind, we will assist in finding a good fit for you.
