Yes! We are always in need of coaches. In fact, if a parent on your child’s team does not step up to coach, your child will not be able to play. There is a mandatory coaches clinic that you will be required to attend, which is of no cost to you. This usually occurs in April before the season starts.

You can help as a team manager or an equipment manager. Another option is to consider signing up as the softball coordinator. Contact anyone on the WUHCA board if you are interested.
