Understanding Coach Responsibilities and Checklist:
#1) Make your team your own- We know it is difficult to walk onto a field and coach a group of players many of you have never coached before. As coaches, you should go on the website before each game and find out when your following game is scheduled so you can inform your team before they disperse. You should be in contact with your players (especially your goalies) to know how many attack, middies and def you’ll have each game. Do your best to learn your players’ names and positions. Rosters for your team are available on your team page at northshorelacrosse.com. If your team is not going to have a goalie for a game, contact a goalie from another team. Goalies during the REGULAR SEASON are interchangeable. As long as you stay active coaching the players on the field and while they’re on the sidelines, it will make for a great experience for them. Just remember, always stay vocal and into the game no matter what the score is.
#2) Playing Time- We want to make sure that all players are getting as much playing time as possible. Make sure we are making substitutions whenever possible and ensuring that all players receive equal playing time. Keep an eye out for the younger, less vocal players at the end of the bench who may not step up and ask to get in. They can get hidden especially if a majority of your team plays HS together. Also, make sure you are determining who goes in each substitution, not the players. This will ensure that everyone gets their fair share of playing time.
#3) Getting Paid and Game Coverage- All coaches get paid at the end of each season. Make sure that you check-in with the press box staff either before or after your game each night. They will have a sign-in sheet for you which need to be filled out every time you coach. Also, for those of you who did not attend the coaches’ meeting, we have W9 forms which must be filled out. These are also available in the press box and should be filled out ASAP. If you cannot attend a game, it is YOUR responsibility to ask one of the other coaches in the league to cover for you. I have attached a NSL contact sheet to this email. If you do not attend a scheduled game for your team and do not find coverage for that game, you will be subject to dismissal from your coaching privileges.
#4) Stay Positive and Respectful- We want to make sure that the players all enjoy their experience with the league. Try your best to correct player’s flaws while not demeaning him/her in front of teammates. Do your best to stay positive on the sidelines and set a good example for these players. If you have an issue with a referees call, pull him aside at halftime or at the stoppage of play and talk with him one on one. We do not want any berating of referees during the game.
#5) Game Recaps- You may be asked at the end of each game about certain highlights, key players or quotes about your game. Please do your best to help us out with this. We are trying to expand our write-ups and game coverage this year and any type of assistance you can give us would be great. If you have a player who deserves recognition for something they've done on or off the field, we want to know about it!
