Recreational Coaching

Every Coach working with kids must pass the mandatory training, Background Check, and be confirmed by Ohio North. It is the Head Coaches Responsibility to confirm with the league if someone is not listed as an Assistant Coach in Affinity.

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. By default JKYSC always places coaches with their children. If you have multiple children please e-mail the registrar with which child you prefer to coach, or multiple teams if possible.

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

Getting Started with Recreational Coaching

1. Register as a Coach

You need to register in Demosphere as a Team Staff / Volunteer, you should be able to use the same login you currently use to register your child. Select the correct program . JKYSC Always assigns coaches to their kids, though sometimes we ask you to coach a different child based on need and availability. Select Head Coach or Assistant Coach as willing, we will always ask before upgrading an Assistant to a Head coach.

When registration opens in future seasons, you’ll need to re-register as a coach to confirm your availability to coach each season.

2. Risk Requirements – training and background check

After you register as a coach you will receive an e-mail with the subject
