COACHES CONNECTION

BFP would like to thank you for volunteering to coach our young players. Coaches are essential to the game and not only teach our athletes skills essential to success on the field—coaches create the environment necessary for our athletes to develop self-confidence and core principles of teamwork and good sportsmanship essential to success in life. Our young athletes will quickly become part of your “family.” It is our goal to provide you with all necessary tools, resources and education. Understand the most important tools you already possess—patience, compassion and dedication. Thanks again and we will see you on the field.
