Coaches

We always welcome parents to volunteer as coaches, assistant coaches, and Team Parents. We do require an Act 34 Criminal Record Check and Pennsylvania Child Abuse History Clearance for all coaches. We also require all coaches to become Head Up certified.  If you are willing to volunteer your time and talents to the organization, please contact our Cheerleading Commissioner – Shannon Nash or our Football Commissioner – Jay Urie.
