Recreational Coaches are Volunteers

  • Volunteer coaches devote a tremendous amount of their own time to the players and we appreciate them very much. 
  • All of our coaches must pass background checks, and we strongly encourage they attend the Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) workshops we provide. 
  • We also offer them the opportunity to expand their knowledge of the game by reimbursing completion of coaching license clinics. 
  • We could not have the program we do without these 250 coaches.
  • If you would like to volunteer or see what it takes to be a coach please click here.
