Questions? Please contact Mark Leclerc at
Central Maine Hoops seeks coaches who might also be parents, notice, the emphasis is on coaches who are parents as opposed to parents who want to coach. We have gone back and forth over the years and find the teams that have the most success are those with a parent who is vested in the team but also has a solid basketball background.
Should you have any questions regarding this exciting 8-week opportunity, or if you would like to coach a team, please contact Mark Leclerc at or visit .
**Teams already established wishing to join the league are always welcomed and should contact Mark Leclerc at for details regarding team registration.
