Mom's that Coach Sports

I coach park and rec, coed soccer, 4&5th grade. I do not have children old enough to play but volunteer my time for the love of the kids and the game! The main office called me yesterday to say "we've had 15 children request you as their coach. The parents have put your name down as their coach. Normally we don't allow this unless they are a sponsor or relative." I was greatly surprised. This is my 8th year, 16th season to coach this grade!! I told 2 of the children, that are my neighbors to put me as their coach since mom can't always take them. If I'm their coach they make it to all practices and games. Well, turns out they told all their friends that are good at soccer to do the same thing. **face palm**
I'm at a great loss!!! I can either drop all the children minus my neighbors or I can choose 12 out of the 15!!! I feel like I'm getting a stacked team but then again I feel honored that these children and their parents want me as a coach. Advice???
