What is Cougar Coaches?

Do you enjoy sports? If so, Cougar Coaches is an easy way for students to give back by volunteering as coaches for local youth athletic organizations. Student coaches run practices and games for a sport of their choosing. Cougar Coaches is an exciting and rewarding way to stay involved in the sport you love while providing much needed service in the community. Assistant coaches are strongly encouraged, so grab a friend and help make a difference in the lives of these kids!

We currently offer opportunities to coach the following sports throughout the year:

Basketball (October)
Wrestling (October)
Volleyball (February)
Soccer (April & August)
Track and Field (April)
Baseball (May)
Softball (May)
Tennis (May)
Cross Country (August)
Flag Football (August)

Coaching registration begins 1 month before the season.

Thank you for your willingness to serve!
