SCSA greatly appreciates our volunteer coaches. We recognize the commitment that each coach gives to our association and to their team & parents. We will strive to provide each coach the resources to be successful and achieve goals.
A good coach is a special kind of person. She or he is a parent, teacher, friend, disciplinarian and psychologist to the players. When a coach accepts the responsibility of coaching, their responsibility is to the players, their parents, the club, and to the sport. As Sheridan Storm subscribes to the principle of teaching by example, it asks that its coaches conduct themselves in such a manner as to set an example that, if followed, would enable every player and parent to be a credit to the game.
