Coaches

Coaches hold perhaps the most important role in the organization.  Coaches are the leaders of the team and are responsible for player positioning, practice, organization, game strategies, playing time and player development.  They set an example for the players and
should think of themselves as representing the players and GBGC at all times.

All coaches must be certified and successfully pass a background check.

Equipment Managers

We are always in need of equipment managers. The equipment manager will be responsible for maintaining, tracking and ordering of all equipment for that sport. Will work closely with the commissioners and coaches to ensure they have all the equipment needed for the season.

Team Moms

Behind every great coach is a great team mom! Team moms are needed for each team in each sport. Team mom duties may vary depending upon the sport, duties may include:

  • Creating and maintain the line up sheet,
  • Checking each child in with the line judge prior to the game,
  • May be asked to assist with the distribution of uniforms,
  • Assist with concessions,
  • Ensuring the kids have sufficient water during the game and practice,
  • Creating and coordinating the snack schedule to ensure each child receives a snack and drink after each game,
  • Notify parents of any game changes, cancellations due to weather and practice schedule,
  • Be the liason between the parent and the coach,
