Competitive Coach Stipends
Competitive Coach and Coach Pay Policy

1)Coach pay is based upon current license held by the coach. The assistant coach receives half of the fee based upon their license. Only one head coach and one assistant coach will be paid per team. Stipends and coach pay may vary from year to year. Depending upon league budgets, stipends may or may not be paid in addition to coach pay. If tournament stipends are paid, they will be paid according to attendance.
