ROSA 2021 COACHING APPLICATIONS
Calling all Coaches - We Need You!!
If you are interested in coaching for ROSA fastpitch this summer now is the time to sign up. Whether you have many years of previous coaching or this would be your first time, we are here to help you as a parent coach volunteer. Over the last 3 years we have been very fortunate to find parents excited to coach and will need the same support in 2021.
This year we will again be offering Coach Training Sessions that will help set coaching expectations and provide training and contacts for any of our newer coaches. These sessions can help prepare you to coach and give those considering coaching a place to ask questions.
For those interested in coaching, Complete the Coaches Application Form

BACKGROUND CHECKS - REQUIRED FOR TRAVEL & HOUSE COACHES

CONCUSSION TRAINING - REQUIRED FOR TRAVEL & HOUSE COACHES
Completing the concussion training is a very important and mandatory step in being a ROSA coach. All coaches must complete the FREE on-line HEADS-UP Concussion training course before their first 2021 game. The State of Minnesota requires all coaches of youth sports teams complete concussion training prior to working with athletes. The Center for Disease Control (CDC) has provided the required training program that coaches will need to complete for certification. The training will take about 45 minutes to complete. There is a test at the end of the training you are required to take to complete the training. You will be presented with a certificate once finished. When you finish the training, you will need to forward the Certificate of Completion to email@example.com
