Medals/End of Season Awards – The medals will be given to Age Group Coordinators. The AGC’s will contact coaches. Coaches only may get them or request their Asst Coach to get them. As a coach, you decide when you would like to distribute them – at a party, during the 6th session or wait until the last session. It’s up to you.

Here’s are some tips:

1) survey your parents to see who is going to attend the last session. If there are going to be players missing and you are going to distribute them with pomp & circumstance, you may want to do it at the 6th session;

2) if you are not going to attend the last session, you should do it at the 6th session;

3) if you have players whose parents have been motivating them by telling them they will get a medal (trophy) if they play, you may want to wait until the 7th session;

4) hide the medals from the players until you hand them out;

5) wait until the end of the session to hand them out;

6) please be careful if you demonstrate how they can put the ribbon on their finger and twirl the medal in the air.

Snacks – Work with your parents to organize a snack schedule at the beginning of the season. Have each family sign up to bring a healthy snack or drink to at least one of the 7 sessions. Please make sure to take into account all possible allergies and dietary constraints of players AND family members when purchasing. Have a discussion or start an email chain with all families so that everyone is aware. Don’t forget to clean up afterwards!
