Snakes without head
The Kamloops Rattlers need a coach for the 2013 Thompson-Okanagan Senior Lacrosse League (TOSLL) campaign.
“We need to find somebody and it seems like there is nobody out there,” said Mark Jurista, the Rattlers’ captain.
“We want a coach, instead of having a player-coach.”
The last year Kamloops had a full-time coach was 2011, when John Aldred was behind the bench.
In 2012, several team leaders acted as player-coaches.
The coach would be required to attend one practice and one game a week, with practices on Tuesdays and games usually on Fridays.
Kamloops kicks its season off with a tilt at Memorial Arena on April 12.
The team’s first practice is slated for 8:30 p.m. on Tuesday, March 26, at Memorial. Any players wishing to try out are invited.
Vernon was forced to fold this season due to a lack of numbers, leaving Kamloops, Armstong and Kelowna to compete for the TOSLL title.
The Rattlers are also looking for sponsors — which can advertise in programs handed out at home games — to help out with equipment and travel costs.
Call Jurista at 250-682-5949 to apply for the coaching position or inquire about sponsorship opportunities.
