Relationship:

Town recreational league coaches are encouraged to participate during our winter practices.  Coaches may attend practice each week to learn from our professional staff. This simulates a winter long coaches clinic.

Coaches:

The Blazers will provide 1 head coach in conjunction with 2 volunteer assistant coaches from the town league. Involving the town league coaches on our coaching staff allows for fundamental reinforcement during recreational league play.
