NGCC STILL REQUIRES VOLUNTEERS
Along with a Canteen and Communication Director, we are also looking for a Softball Convenor, and Equipment Convenor positions for Softball/Baseball, Youth (9 & up) Soccer and Basketball. We are also looking for someone who is looking to do some of our activity planning. For more information on these positions, check out the information in our By-Laws, or contact us here.
Every year, our Volunteer coaches run into parents that are not satisfied with how their child is being coached. Here is a document that all parents (and coaches too) should read to remind themselves to keep things in perspective. Happy reading!
A new article titled "Are Great Coaches Becoming an Endangered Species?" is also very good and worth a read...find it here.
