Volunteer Coaches: SLA is a volunteer organization and requires the active participation of the parents for the program to run effectively. Coaches are always in demand especially for the inexperienced or younger players. PLEASE consider volunteering to be a coach. No experience is required to start and you'll learn with the players. Just be willing to learn and enjoy the sport. There are several clinics in our area to help you get started. Please see our calendar page for more information about coaches clinics.
