About our Youth Sports Program:
--------------------------------------------------------------------------------
Children Sports International prides itself on the atmosphere that we set for the youth in our sports programs. Young athletes are in a setting where they have the ability to develop their skills, learn the importance of teamwork, and most importantly, have fun playing sports and being active. We emphasize healthy competition and play in a positive and supportive atmosphere where everyone gets to chance to express themselves and improve on their skills.

Basic Requirements for Volunteer Coaches:
--------------------------------------------------------------
Although knowledge of the game is helpful, the only real requirement to be a volunteer coach in our youth sports program is the ability to commit to the practice and/or game schedule for the program duration and a desire to help youth in under-served communities. For each training location, Children Sports International provides a thorough coach's manual which includes information on how to structure a practice, tips for coaching during games, and drills and plays to use throughout the program. At a coach's orientation training, we also show you how to put this manual to good use by demonstrating techniques and helping you determine which skills are appropriate for the age of your players. All equipment needed for the sports conditioning program is provided by Children Sports International and/or its community partners and sponsors.

Volunteer Coach's Responsibilities:
----------------------------------------------------
- Complete and Submit a Volunteer Coach Application and Background Check Authorization
- Attend and successfully pass coach's orientation training program
- Transport assigned team equipment to and from practice sites (when applicable)
- Develop, plan, and organize weekly practices (when applicable)
- Distribute program updates to parents and players and maintain communication throughout the sports program duration.
