Youth Tournament/Travel Teams

All Seasons

  • Grades 5-8 will be paid, non-family member coaches for all teams.


High School Teams

High School Teams

Summer Season

  • Frosh, JV, & Varsity will have paid coaches for all teams. (We try to hire the coaches from CHS to fill these roles if they are available.)

Fall & Spring Seasons

  • Frosh & JV will be coached by Varsity players and have parent/guardian supervision, per tradition.

  • Varsity will be self-coached and have parent/guardian supervision, per tradition.

Why has this been tradition?

All High School Coaches in the state of Oregon are in a “dead-period” designated by the OSAA during the Fall & Spring. This means they are not allowed to coach any of their own high school kids in games at this time, and are limited to just skill work, open gyms, and strength & conditioning. Cleveland ATHLETES & FAMILIES have always stepped-up & helped facilitate Fall teams within our organization, providing the athletes a place to play while gearing up for Winter. Spring will be the same going forward so that players can get in a few game situations together before Summer team tryouts at CHS.
