Coaches volunteer on a weekly basis to train athletes in a particular sport. Coaches develop the skills of our athletes and prepare them to compete in major events. The time commitment for a coach is two hours per week for eight to 10 weeks at a time. What is required of a coach can vary based on the program. Please contact us to get more detailed information about any program.
