Coaching for BSA


Q: Who are the BSA coaches?

A: BSA coaches are dedicated volunteers (often parents of team members) who offer their time to support BSA in the mission of bringing quality, community-centered sports programming to any child who wishes to play – regardless of the child’s background or ability.

Q: Do the coaches have any training or support?

Volunteer coaches participate in a volunteer coaches’ orientation prior to each season. Moreover, they are supported by the BSA Director for the specific sport they are coaching and Executive Director who can help manage any concerns.

Q: What if I haven't played the sport in years?

BSA relies on the dedication and generosity of our volunteer coaches and we welcome new parents to get involved – even if you haven’t played in years! We are happy to help connect you with more experienced coaches and we're here to answer any questions as they arise. Plus - you'll likely find you remember more than you think!

Q: How can I sign up to coach?

Information on how to sign up as a coach is available on our Volunteer page.
