How are teams created? (Includes Coach and Assistant coach “Perks”)

Teams start with a coach. Coaches may receive up to 4 guaranteed players on their respective teams. Coaches may automatically get their children or direct relatives guaranteed on their teams. Coaches are allowed one Assistant coach. This assistant coach is also allowed to have their children guaranteed on their teams as long as the number of guaranteed players does not exceed 4. At this point, if there are additional guaranteed positions that are not filled, the coach may accept sponsors. The coach may accept up to 2 sponsors, up to but not exceeding the total of 4 guaranteed players. After these guaranteed players are added to the team, all additional players are randomly assigned by the board.

What Player Perks are available for Sponsors?

  1. They may choose to allow their player to choose their coach, IF the coach has approved of this player counting towards one of their “4 Guaranteed Players”.


Sponsorships are needed and encouraged to continue to provide resources to Big Sun. 

Sponsorships will have advertisements options to be highlighted at our facility, verbal acknowledgment, as well as receive other player perks. The cost for Sponsorships start at $250. If you are sponsoring in order to obtain a player perk, please ensure that you understand available player perks from our Recreation FAQs Section. You must also have a coach that has approved your request before you sponsor a team. All Sponsorships are nonrefundable. Please see our Sponsorship Page for more information and the Sponsorship Form.
