Evaluation Changes & Volunteers, Coaches, Scholarship, and Coupons


Evaluations This Weekend

Due to a change in division format for 2019, player evaluations for the Rookie division are not required. Therefore the February 23rd scheduled Rookie evaluations have been cancelled.

Minors and Majors evaluations will remain on February 24th at 1pm (Minors) and 3pm (Majors) but will take place on the Hollymead Lower Field, weather permitting. If we experience inclement weather, the evaluations for those two divisions will take place inside the Sutherland Gymnasium. Please monitor your email and/or the league website and Facebook page.

In order to help run player evaluations in minors and majors, we need three parents to volunteer to assist for each session. This counts as your required 2 hours of volunteer time for the league so please consider helping us out, and satisfying your volunteer requirement early. If interested, please email volunteers@playnorthside.org
 


Coaches

Coach selections for the Minor and Major divisions for the 2019 Spring season are as follows:

Majors
Chris Guyton
Jason Jennings
Bill Owens
Mike Pariseau
Jim Rolf
Steve Yow
 
Minors
Darian Cochran
Sam Danne
Ray Feola

Thanks to these coaches and their assistants for volunteering their time and bringing their enthusiasm to another great season at Northside!

We are still in need of a sixth coach for the Minors division, so if you or someone you know is interested in coaching a team please reach out to either Chris Guyton or Steve Yow.
