The HOD Handbook and Coaching Guides are your guide to Fall Festival events and schedules. The committee encourages not only coaches, but any potential attendees to download the booklet for more information.
Please be advised that The HOD Handbook and Coaching Guides will only be available to download online and are subject to revisions as the Festival approaches. Due to the large size of the files, the downloads may take up to a few minutes. It is viewable in Adobe Acrobat.
This year, we're proud to offer coaches a more comprehensive, sport-specific coaching guide. Please take the time to review the entire Coaching Guide for your sport, as it has important information regarding competition, awards, meals and transportation for you and your athletes.
Please be advised that the Coaching Guides are subject to revisions as the Festival approaches. Check back often for the most up-to-date version.
