Coaches in the 12u and 14u division will be placed on Sunday.  We have parent/coaches who must be placed after their daughter tries out and makes a team.  We do not believe it is fair to automatically put a child on a team just because their parent coaches there.  That player must earn the spot on that team.

For any parent/coach in our program they understand this process.  They also understand the coach/player role. There will be no "special" treatment for a player who happens to have a parent as a coach.  The expectations of that player are the same as all players. 

Those players must also understand this role and refer to the parent coach as "coach", never mom or dad during practices or tournaments.  Our parent coaches are highly qualified and have extensive years of playing at a high level along with years of coaching experience.  River City is thankful we have the opportunity to utilize this excellent coaching talent, while at the same time allowing this parent to be able to "watch" their child play instead of missing most of their season because they are at a different location, or playing at the same time on different courts.

If anyone should ever have a question about the placement of our coaches, you should contact me directly.

The remaining portion of our coaching staff (TBA) will be filled in over the next two weeks as schedules are finalized.
