Volunteer Coach Information

Volunteers play an essential and valuable role as coaches for BPRD youth sports programs. Coaches serve as teachers, mentors and friends for the children on their team and help the District with keeping programs affordable so that everyone can play!

Volunteer coaches teach the skills needed for the sport, but equally important, they teach and model important life skills and lessons like sportsmanship and responsibility and help foster self-confidence.

Steps to becoming a successful coach

Complete the BPRD volunteer application 

  • The application includes information that we will use in processing a criminal history background check. For safety’s sake, we process a criminal history background check annually for all volunteers age 18 and over helping with recreation programs.
  • A BPRD sports program coordinator will call you to confirm placement and information about the team you will support and the date for coach’s training/orientation.

Attend coaches training.

  • If you are unable to attend, you are responsible for reviewing the coaches manual and all training materials prior to your first practice.

Complete online concussion awareness training. 

  • A link to the training will be emailed to you.
  • Federal law requires all volunteers who are working with youth in sports related programs to complete this training. (one time training).

Check this site at least once a week for helpful coaching information and schedule updates.

Your teams success or lack of success in games does not indicate what kind of coach you are.

But having a group of kids that are coachable, respectful, great teammates, mentally tough, resilient and tries their best IS a direct reflection of your coaching
