Coaches Needed!

Most HotShots coaches are parents of a player. As with any youth sport, HotShots is dependent on parent volunteers. Coaches are usually in short supply, so HotShots encourages parents to step up, either in helping us secure a coach, or possibly coaching themselves. HotShots works to make the experience as fun and easy as possible! Coaches continue to say how much they have enjoyed it, and most return year after year.
