Volunteer to Become a Youth Sports Coach
Do you want to be a mentor to children, become a volunteer coach? Pueblo Parks and Recreation Youth Sports would be unable to operate without volunteer coaches. Pueblo Parks and Recreation will be seeking volunteer coaches for all fall and winter youth sports.
All volunteer coaches must be a minimum of 18 years old. All coaches must turn in a background check, volunteer contract, coach certification test and concussion test and must be approved by Pueblo Parks and Recreation. All coaches will be notified by email/phone call if selected to be a coach and all coaches must attend a coaches meeting. All coaches that volunteer for a full season will receive a voucher worth $30 that may be used for the program of their choice. Teams are formed based on number of volunteer coaches.
Volunteer Youth Sport Coaches are a valuable asset to the Pueblo Parks and Recreation Youth Sports Division. These individuals demonstrate a selfless concern for the community as evidenced by their willingness to give of their time to help area children.
The Pueblo Parks and Recreation Youth Sports Division offers youth athletic leagues (Basketball, T-Ball, Flag Football and Summer Basketball at the SLABS) throughout the year.
The Youth Sports Division staff will attempt to obtain a clear understanding of each potential coach’s background, in an effort to place them in a volunteer position that best utilizes their experience, and provides for the safety and skill development of the city’s program participants. Therefore, before a potential Head Coach is permitted to participate in any of our youth leagues/programs, he/she is required to:
Practice times will not be assigned until all paperwork is submitted and approved!
The successful completion of these items is not a guarantee that any individual will be designated a coach in the Pueblo Parks and Recreation Department Youth Sport Division. All current Head Coaches, potential Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches are reminded that coaching Youth Sports is a “Privilege and Not a Right.”
