NEW in 2015!
No player requests will be granted to be on the same team unless the parents are coaching together (2 coaches per team).  Please indicate this during registration.  Players will also not be allowed to play up a grade. 
Instructor: Parent Volunteers are needed to coach each team and will be given a full program credit for helping out with this program.  Volunteers will be chosen on their experience in coaching and availability to coach.  Limit of 2 coaches per team will be taken.
Contact: Brett Barber, Grimes Parks and Recreation Director or 515-986-2143

This program allows players to play in a recreational atmosphere coached by parent volunteers and supervised by the Grimes Parks and Recreation Staff.  Players are assigned to a team randomly but players are allowed to sign up for one other friend during registration in the comments box online.  Practice times for the Grades 3-6 will be assigned at the Coaches Meeting.
