Volunteer coaches make our programs possible. The staff at Pelican Park wishes to say, "Thank You" to our coaches!
The leagues at Pelican Park are dependent on all of the volunteers that take time from their busy schedules to make a difference in the lives of children. Consider becoming an important part of a child’s life. Volunteer to coach today!POINT SYSTEM SELECTION PROCESS FOR COACHES
In the Fall of 2013 the Pelican Park implemented a new process for the selection of coaches for every sport. There is now a point system in place for ages that have more coaches than teams available. If your age group requires using the point system for the selection of coaches you may be required to send the Park additional information regarding your history with the sport you’re registering for.
You may be asked to provide the following information in a short time frame of 24 hours. We would like to suggest you start compiling the following information now and be prepared to send it to the Park if needed. We would need proof that:
- you played High School, College or for a semi-pro or a professional team for the sport your registering
- you were a full time coach High School, College or for a semi-pro or a professional team for the sport your registering
- you are or were a certified Official for the sport your registering
- you coached for another Park for the sport your registering
Proof can be in the form of team picture, team Roster from website, picture of letter jacket, copy of letterman award, newspaper articles, programs from games, pictures of yearbooks, or anything else that you have to prove you participated on that level.
In addition to the points you may receive for your history you will also receive points for:
- registering early to be a coach
- your attendance to meetings for that sport
- helping at evaluations
- Attending the coach’s clinics
You will also get points for being an AGD or Head Coach at Pelican Park for previous years
There also may be a reduction of points for the following:
- A person who was ejected by an official from any game at Pelican Park within the past year
- A person who received a phone call for counseling from the Park due to negative behavior where the coach was put on probation. Calls made for gathering information regarding an incident do not apply.
- Not returning equipment from prior seasons.
