Coaches Corner

Please Remember...
Our Saturday inhouse program objective is to promote and elevate the standards of sportsmanship and fair play. Also, please remember that we don't keep standings (heck, we don't even officially keep score)! We ask that coaches and assistant coaches set the example out there for our children to follow. They DO see and hear you! All rostered players must be registered in accordance with PA West and MASA guidelines, remember you can only roster players registered and insured through MASA. Any coach that plays a non-rostered player will be removed. Thanks for your cooperation. Let's have fun out there!
