Recreational Coaching

JKYSC Recreational coaches are largely parents or other volunteers. We are always in need of coaches who have experience with the game, and optionally some experience coaching.

A large percentage of our recreational coaches are simply parents like you who volunteer. We are attempting to work on better training and onboarding for new coaches, but please don’t hesitate to ask questions on Facebook   or at info@jkysc.com
