The Northwest Christian Sports League is very grateful to those who have volunteered their time and energy as Head Coaches and Managers.
Being a Head Coach or a Manager is very beneficial and fun experience.
You get a chance to make a difference in the lives of some very special young people.
We need God-fearing, men and women of integrity to help make this league a success.
If you are interested in becoming a Head Coach or Manager or want to sign up for the current season, complete the checklist below.
With the economy and difficulties that many of us are facing and with the rising percentage of scholarships, the league will no longer be able to honor the coaches' scholarship. We have been the only league for many years that have been able to do this. This is a new direction for the league and one we didn't want to go in. We honor each and every one of you and appreciate what you do as a coach for this league.
The league would ask if your family is going through a difficult time that you fill out the normal scholarship paperwork
, rather than going online and getting the automatic scholarship.
We thank you so much for everything you do; we look forward to many more seasons ahead.
Help us to better organize teams with earlier registration especially if you wish to have your team back.
The League does its best to keep the teams as even as possible so the games are more fun for the children, please remember it is a first come first serve in drafting players to teams.
Have your players specifically request for you.
If your team reaches the max amount of players, the league will not take players off to replace with someone who registers late.
We are going to add players to other teams to keep the numbers balanced.
If you have players that you know are going to return and you want them on your team, encourage them to register now!

Head Coach / Manager Checklist:
Download all of the coach forms, fill them out and submit them to the NCSL office.
We keep a permanent record of all of our coaches.
The Pastoral Recommendation and WSP form only once unless you are asked to update your file.
The Coach Application needs to be submitted every season as it is used to keep track of what division(s) each Head Coach or Asst. Coach is coaching.
Washington State requires that all coaches read the Concussion Information document and all parents read and sign the Concussion Waiver form before the first game/practice.
You are required to notify the parents of your team and collect the signed forms for all children during or before the first practice.
Time and Location: We do our best to accommodate our coaches' busy schedules.
Submit (by E-mail only) three different requests for your weekday practice day, time and location, and two for you Saturday practices (if wanted).
The number of practices for each division is as follows:
Ages 4-6: 1 practice per week
Ages 7-10: 1-2 practices per week*
Ages 11+: 2 practices per week
* One practice will initially be assigned to the 9-10 division.
If there is extra room, after every team has one practice, each team that wants will be assigned a second practice.
Before the regular season begins, coaches have the option of an extra practice on Saturdays.
Each coach gets to choose the team name that his team will go by. Submit two different options for your team's name.
The sports league staff drafts all of the teams with your help.
Send us the dream team that you would like to have this season, (e-mail only) and we will try and make it happen.
The teams will be drafted while the registrations come in, so you will be able to view the team that is being built for you weeks ahead of the season.
The division that the players are in is determined by how old they are as of the first game of the season.
If there is anything we need to know regarding rosters, schedules, games or anything else let us know in advance so we can serve in any way possible.
Note: This is a first-come, first-served basis, so don't wait.
Please have all correspondence submitted to the NCSL office by e-mail (firstname.lastname@example.org
) on or before the due date posted.
