Providing year round sports programs for all school aged children in the Southwest neighborhoods of Minneapolis

Participation Philosophy

SWAC coaches are happy to have parents participate in the teaching process. During the sign-up process please indicate the level of participation you can offer. We always need coaches, assistant coaches, team managers, and supportive parents to cheer the kids on

At SWAC we strive to give all participants an enjoyable sports experience. If you or your child are having an issue with the coach, we suggest that you first bring up your concern with the coach in hopes that it can be resolved. If this is not satisfactory you can bring your concern to the Park Directors and they will put you in touch with the SWAC board if necessary.

Please remember that our coaches are volunteers and are dedicated to teaching our kids the value of fair play and teamwork. They deserve our help, gratitude and most of all, respect.
