SMBHA is looking for WCC Head Coaches

Surrey Minor Ball Hockey is pleased to announce that we will be hosting the 2020 Western Challenge Cup from July 16 - 19.  
Teams will be divided into the following divisions:

U-11 ( players born in 2009 and 2010 )
U-13 ( players born in 2007 and 2008 )
U-15 ( players born in 2005 and 2006 )
U-17 ( players born in 2003 and 2004 )
U-19 ( players born in 2001 and 2002 )


PLUS Female only divisions , with those divisions ages still being worked out.

We are dedicated to having a team in each division for this tournament and look forward to showcasing the talents of SMBHA players. Our goal is to build rep teams that not only are able to compete at this high level tournament, but also have fun and show respect to the other competitors.  We aim to not only build a reputation of competing with the teams we send, but we also want to built a reputation outside of the arena. Positive feedback on how well the players behave throughout the entire tournament are also key attributes.

With that in mind, we are now taking applications for Head Coaches for these teams.
