All of our teams are dependent upon parent support.  Without their continuing efforts and offers of time and energy, the opportunities would be significantly limited.  Parents enable our teams to exist through their contribution as coaches and managers of teams. We really appreciate the commitment made by parents in these roles and the ongoing support and encouragement they give to team members.  Prior experience is not necessary as support and training is given.

Teams are generally selected from Year 5 & 6 students
