Volunteer Coaches Needed

The Parks and Recreation Department uses volunteer coaches for many youth programs. Volunteer coaches play an important role in the youth sports experience. Volunteers are trained in our philosophy of youth sports, first aid, concussions and how to teach skills for their sport. All volunteers must complete a background check each year.
