  2. The Head Coach must declare his assistant coach at the Coaches meeting. The head coach’s and the assistant coach’s kids will automatically be put on team before the draft starts. If a coach does not have a kid or an assistant coach they will be given an equal number of picks before draft order will begin.
  3. If a player is picked and they have a sibling that is playing in the same age group, the coach must take the other sibling and it counts as the next draft pick.
