Coaching: The Club is reliant on volunteer support to coach and manage these teams. The team's coach/es take team practices, are responsible for the gear bag and help to set up games on Saturday mornings. Don't worry! We have lots of resources to help you if you're new to coaching and are happy to answer any questions you may have. All of our coaches must complete the free Foundation Course at Grafton and be police vetted by NZC. Contact the Grafton office for more information.
