      Starting X1 -  Supporting Links 

      Cal North has put together the "Starting Eleven" most helpful supporting resources for our registrars! We have gone through the many supporting articles and links that cover vital information and processes within GotSport. As you read below you will find that these Starting Eleven support links will be key as we prepare for the upcoming 22/23 season.

This site includes training videos, many registration support links, and even steps on how to complete coaching requirements.
