Coaches Checklist 

 

Interested in Coaching?

Thank you in your interest in becoming a Monroe Parks and Recreation Volunteer Coach. The league's success depends on interested parents and members of the community such as yourself to ensure that our participants receive the very best experience possible. As a volunteer coach, we are more interested in your ability to communicate with the children on your team to effectively convey a positive sports experience.
Anyone interested in volunteering as a head or assistant coach, please contact Rae Moore, Athletic/Special Events Coordinator (704-282-4663 | rlmoore@monroenc.org)
 
*Head Coaches will receive reimbursement for registration fee at the conclusion of the season for their child (1 per Head Coach). It is the coach’s responsibility to notify Monroe Parks and Recreation if he/she does not receive the reimbursement check within one (1) week after completion of season.

Coaching Responsibilities

* Have a parents' meeting at the first practice to explain the league's expectations.  This is a great time to allow parents and players to meet each other and establish a positive environment.

* ​Coaches must be organized and prepared for practices and games.  Practice routines and drills must be outlined and organized.  For more resources on practice drills please click here!

* Always keep parents informed about any important league updates including practice times, changes in schedules, cancelations and any changes in the regular season game schedule.

* Wear appropriate attire to all practices and games.  This includes a city-supplied volunteer coach's shirt and an ID badge.  Coaches will not be allowed on the bench without a city-supplied ID badge.

* Know the rules regarding the league in which you are coaching.

* Remain consistent with our youth league philosophy.  The main objective of this league is to teach the fundamentals of the game and help children develop a sense of teamwork, belonging and to have fun!

* Winning will NEVER be the main objective in City of Monroe Youth Leagues.
