Parent & Chaperone Information
Team parent is a parent on your team that volunteers their time to organize team information and help the coach, players and parents to create a unified understanding of team information, requirements and goals.
For Girls Club:
The team parent can be either a mom or dad of a player on your team. However, if that team is participating in any travels for the season, it must be a mom. The reason we require this is because they will be expected to go in and out of players rooms on travels and players will most likely be more comfortable with a mom performing this duty.
For Boys Club:
The team parent can be either mom or dad for teams that do or do not travel.
Team Parent Duties:
Team parents are to make team rosters that have both parent and player information on it. They are to keep the roster updated and disperse it to the team.

Coaches are responsible for telling the team where their tournament is at and what time to be there. However, as noted above, team parents should remind the team of the coach’s announcement.
