Volunteer Coaches Needed- Youth Basketball

The Parks and Recreation Department uses volunteer coaches for many youth programs. Volunteer coaches play an important role in the youth sports experience.  Volunteers are trained in our philosophy of youth sports, first aid, concussions and how to teach skills for their sport.  All volunteers must complete a background check each year.  Coaches meeting for 3rd-6th grade basketball will be November 3. Coaches meeting for Tikes/Squirt Basketball will be December 1.  A classroom and on-court clinic for all basketball coaches with OHS Boys and Girls Varsity staff will be 7:15-8:15 pm for Girls coaches at OJHS and 7:15-8:15 pm for Boys coaches on Thursday November 10 at OHS, after the Kid’s clinic.
