Coaches are appointed by the Program Manager. Coaches may choose to coach only an advanced, or an advanced and Instructional team.
Élite Coaches may combine an Instructional and an Élite team training session, thereby reducing the number of sessions per week for the coach.
Coaches are required to be at least one level of certification higher than the standard. Assistant Coaches must be certified at level, or better.
The training sessions will be two days per week. In Spring Select, it is rare for a player to play in the Instructional Program as well, and will therefore attend both practices. In the fall, most players play Élite only, and they will attend both practices. Some players will play Concurrent Élite, and may be attending a practice with their instructional team, and only the Friday practice with your Élite team.
All Élite players must attend the Friday training.
When feasible, Instructional and Élite teams will train together on the non-Friday training day.
