KLD camp is completely run by our high school coaches (with logistical and financial support provided by parents and other community adults). KLD Coaches NEED to be at camp EVERY DAY from 12:00 - 4:30 pm to set-up, manage, and break-down camp. Pre-camp training is also required prior to the start of camp. If your ability to make all the camp and/or training day will be limited due to other commitments, be sure to mention that in this application (we can sometimes make exceptions for situations we are told about AHEAD OF TIME).
Being a volunteer KLD Coach is an incredibly fun experience and offers many personal rewards, such as new friends, free food, and that great feeling you get from helping others. However, it is also a big responsibility that requires real commitment. Please make sure you can fulfill the responsibilities listed above (for example, check with your parents on vacation days) before you apply to be a KLD coach. Parents are welcome and encouraged to help at camp too.
Once KLD coaches are selected, all coaches 18 years of age or OLDER will need to be "LivesScanned" at Sunnyvale Police Department or other LiveScan locations, before the beginning of camp. This is basically a fingerprint and background check for adults who interact with kids - just like what AYSO and other youth programs require. We will provide you with the details on how to get this done during the training days and will reimburse you for any cost.
