A parent assistant coach is a volunteer coach that may or may not have a child on the team. The parent assistant coach will be required to be at, at least one training session a week and attend all games. The parent coach will work closely with the assigned professional trainer. The parent assistant coach will assist the professional trainer at training sessions and games. The parent assistant coach is required to have a minimum of a USSF “E” Coaching License. This license is required by the leagues in order to get a coaches pass and to coach on the side line. This is important because there may be times that trainers are stuck in traffic or coming from another Wheaton Wings game and the parent assistant coach may need to fill in.
The parent manager is one of the key parts of the puzzle of success for the team. The parent manager’s main responsibility is communication. The parent manager will need to communicate with the Wheaton Park District, the Professional Trainer, Parent Assistant Coach, the league and the tournament directors. The parent manager will be responsible to get the word out when a practice is cancelled or moved. The parent manager will deal with other clubs in rescheduling a league game, report that change to the league/ referee assigner and then make sure all team members are aware of the change. The parent manager will confirm each game, home and away. The parent manager will get directions to away sites and give it out to each player. The parent manager will provide information to be put on the Wheaton Wings website.
