CMBA Coach and Manager Information
The CMBA Board wants to thank all coaches and volunteers who put their personal time into our program. We know first hand what type of commitment it takes to be a part of any sports program and we appreciate everything you do for the Association and our Athletes. We thank you all for stepping up and taking on this vital role with your group. We also know just how difficult it can be to get ready for your season and have everything set up in order to just get off the ground. There is always a lot of confusion or lack of information provided to you in order to get everything ready, so CMBA has started this page with the intention to provide as much information in order to get you started every year.
