ATTENTION ALL PARENTS: VOLUNTEER COACHES NEEDED!
PLEASE SIGN UP TO COACH WHEN YOU REGISTER YOUR CHILD TO PLAY. We will provide instruction and weekly lesson plans. No basketball experience is necessary – just a desire to spend quality time with your child. There will be a training for all volunteer coaches and mandatory background screening. This training will focus on coaching fundamentals and philosophy as well as provide guidance for creating and running practices and games.
