Volunteer Lacrosse Coaches Needed
March 4, 2015
Bend Park & Recreation District is seeking adult volunteers to coach lacrosse for the 2015 Youth Lacrosse League. Program participants are boys and girls in first through eighth grade. Volunteer coaches are an essential part of the league, providing support with program logistics, coaching and mentoring youth. Volunteers must enjoy working with kids and be able to create a positive, encouraging recreational environment for all players.
The lacrosse season runs March 30th to May 29th. Teams practice and play games twice-a-week 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 600 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 online concussion awareness training. Online volunteer application and background check available at www.bendparksandrec.org.
