Volunteer Coaches Needed
The Urbana Park District’s youth sports programs rely heavily on volunteers to coach youth sports teams. Interested adults are needed to help lead and coach the community’s youth. Many park district programs would not be possible without the help of individuals like YOU.
Volunteers do not need to have an extensive knowledge of the sport. However, you must have the desire and enthusiasm to work with youth three to four hours per week. Training sessions and resources are provided for each sport, including discussions on skills, strategies and policies.
Any adult interested in helping should call 255-8601 or 367-1536.
Urbana Park District youth sports programs provide an excellent training ground for anyone interested in officiating sports. All officials should be 16 or older.
Certified officials are encouraged to apply to assist in maintaining a high-quality program, and to help develop and train less-experienced officials.
The pay rate varies with the age of competition and sport. Applications are available at the Planning and Operations building at 901 N. Broadway.
