To coach in the Spring Flag League at NSMF, you must have coached at North Surrey Minor Football in the previous Fall Tackle Season. This ensures that COCs, Insurance and Criminal Checks coverage is still valid. If you did not coach the previous fall season, you will need to get a Criminal Check and sign a Coaches Code of Conduct, as well as the approval from the NSMF executive.

Though you can have as many coaches as you want, only 2 coaches are allowed on the sidelines on game days. All other coaches and parents must watch from the designated areas, usually the end zones or bleachers.

Coaches’ Responsibility

The Head Coach will be responsible for:

  • ensuring the roster has a min. 8 and max. 12 players.
  • administration of the team (ask a parent to act as manager)
  • setting practice times
  • complete rosters to be handed in on time

If the above items are not all completed by the set deadlines, your team will not be entered.

Player Eligibility & Roster Makeup

  1. Rosters must have a minimum of 8 and maximum of 12 players.
  2. No import rule (new in 2016)
  3. Team roster books are available at the clubhouse. As a NSMF Coach you have access to these books. Ask to view the books at the clubhouse.
  4. If you’re looking for one or two more players to fill your roster, there is a Player Pool List. Contact the Spring Flag Coordinator to have the Player Pool list sent to you. These are unverified names and ages will have to be confirmed by the coach.
  5. If there are any players left on the Player Pool List, we may place them on any existing teams that have roster room.

There are plenty of athletes in our association, so please respect other coaches’ rosters and do not recruit players from existing teams.

Where do I start?

If you are interested in coaching a team and need more information on how to get started, email the Spring Flag Coordinator, and he’ll get back to you and answer all your questions.
