What is Cougar Coaches?
Cougar Coaches recruits BYU students to serve as coaches in a variety of sports for local youth athletic organizations. Student coaches have the opportunity to be the head coach of a team running practices and games. It is encouraged to have one or two friends available as assistant coaches to help out with practices. Each sport generally lasts 4-6 weeks, demanding about 3 hours of service per week. This service is not only meaningful to the students, but life-changing for the children as well. Both male and female coaches are needed.
Throughout the year there are opportunities to coach the following sports:
-Track and Cross Country

After a game, I was wondering what good I was doing for these kids. At that moment a mother of one of the athletes I was coaching came up to me and thanked me for being a great example to her son and giving him self confidence. This was such a witness to me of the blessing of service.
