Coach Registration

Hi Coach!

Thank you for volunteering to be a Head Coach or Co-Coach for SoCal Elite Sports. This registration is to get a few extra details about your coaching experience.

You will need to register one time for each child.

Please do not complete this registration if you are not the Volunteer.

Coach Info

Team Drafts

  • Drafts will be held on Google Meet. We will share a master file with all coaches on Google Drive that coaches will be able to view but not edit.
  • To join the draft using Google Meet please make sure to copy the link on our coaches portal. We will send the link to all selected coaches prior to the draft. If you are using a phone you will need to download Google Meet. If you are on a desktop the link should take you straight to the draft.
  • You will need to log in to a Google account to access the draft.

Team Schedules

  • When building the schedule we will try to accommodate Head Coaches that are coaching multiple teams so they may attend all of their games. This may not be possible with all Co-Coaches.
  • There are no schedule requests.

Volunteer Roles

Head Coach

  • Responsible for consistently communicating with your team and coaching during your scheduled games.
  • Head Coaches will help the SoCal Elite Staff members with the practice clinic and manage their team.

Head Coach

  • Attend player evaluations and your division's virtual team draft via Google Meet.
  • Responsible for consistently communicating with your team and coaching during your scheduled games.
  • Coordinate at least one (1) outside practice per week.
  • If there are any issues with your team – such as players not showing up to practices or games, or any complaints regarding the league – we ask that you communicate with the league by emailing [email protected].


  • Not an assistant coach.
  • Co-Coaches will be paired up to split the duties of a Head Coach above.
  • The league will split volunteers up to balance the coaching experience as best as possible. Please note that there are no Co-Coach requests.
  • Coaches who cannot fulfill their role will be moved to the Wait List.

Changing from a Volunteer to a Non-Volunteer

  • If a coach decides to change from a volunteer to a non-volunteer their player will be moved to the bottom of the wait list.
  • Former volunteers' players will only be placed on a team if we have enough coaches in that division.


  • If you are selected to coach we will be creating a placeholder team for you in TeamSnap and attach you as a non-player using the provided volunteer email and cell phone.
  • Make sure that your volunteer email is your current active email! This is where you will receive your communication from us.
  • Team Name: Please do not change the names on TeamSnap. Changes will NOT be updated on the schedule.
  • Rostering: Once teams have been formed we will be import all players to TeamSnap as we utilize it as a communication platform. You can use TeamSnap as both an app or on your browser.
  • Messages: Allows you to send an email, chat notification or an alert. Alerts will send a push notification or a text message if your team members enable text notification. This is a powerful tool for communicating any urgent notifications.
  • Schedule: TeamSnap has its own scheduling platform. If you chose to use this please make sure your team knows they need to check the online schedule on the SoCal Elite Sports Website every Friday. We post the schedule on our website and any changes made are automatically updated there. Scheduling in TeamSnap should be used to track your teams attendance.
  • If you or a player wishes to add anyone they can do it via the app.
    • The account that was used to register the player needs to pull up the roster on the app.
    • Select their child and select "Add Family Member."
    • Enter the First and Last Name and their email address. They will have to accept the invitation.
