Volunteer Lacrosse Coaches Needed
March 15, 2016
Bend Park & Recreation District is seeking adult volunteers to coach youth lacrosse for the 2016 Youth Lacrosse League. Program participants are boys and girls in first through eighth grade. Volunteer coaches are an essential part of the program, providing support with program logistics, coaching and mentoring youth. Volunteers must enjoy working with youth and be able to create a positive, encouraging recreational environment for all players.
The youth lacrosse season runs April 4 to June 3. Teams practice and play games twice-weekly in the afternoon/evening during the nine-week season. Coaches volunteer approximately five hours per week. Program enrollment is at an all-time record high with over 670 youth participating. Several teams are in need of volunteer coaches.
Training and season-long support is provided. Volunteer coaches must attend a pre-season volunteer orientation/training. Safety is a top priority, so all coaches must complete a volunteer application and criminal history background check, as well as concussion awareness training. Online volunteer application and background check available at www.bendparksandrec.org.
