2018 Season - Coach Invitation

Posted by Peninsula Warriors Lacrosse Association on Dec 08 2017 at 06:56AM PST

The 2018 Box Lacrosse season is soon to begin, and we again are looking for awesome coaches for all our Peninsula teams. Are you interested in becoming a coach for the young players from your neighborhood?

We are interested to hear from you if you are interested in becoming a new coach, or are a seasoned coach, or would like to be part of the coaching team!

You would need to establish a regular once-weekly practice time with your team, probably at Saanichton lacrosse box or Panorama recreation centre, and also attend games. There are around 16 league games which will be scheduled for evenings and weekends, home and away between April and July, and perhaps some exhibition games too.

A community coach strives to do the following:
¥ Encourage young athletes to be active and to have fun;
¥ plan purposeful practices and create engaging activities;
¥ lead their participants in developing gross motor skills;
¥ help participants identify how to improve their performance by providing constructive criticism and advice;
¥ manage problems by making ethical and respectful decisions
¥ enable safe participation by creating a safe environment
¥ teach others how to respect themselves, others, and their sport.

In short, when you become a coach, you help others reach higher, both in sport and in life!

If you are interested in becoming an awesome coach this season, or would like more information, please contact the association by email:
