Volunteer coaches lead practices (Grades 3-6) and Saturday games (Grades 1-6). The basketball program requires a lot of energy from a thoughtful, creative, concerned group of volunteer coaches comprised of parents and other adults who love sports and instructing children. Effective coaches fully support a positive youth sports philosophy in their attitude and behavior at practice, games, and events. You help the players learn skills, discuss fair play, and most of all, have fun. Look at coaching as an opportunity not only to teach sports skills but also to achieve something far more significant –helping children reach their full potential. Interested volunteer coaches should fill out a Coach Application. Download the application at or pick up an application at the Takiff Center, 999 Green Bay Road, Glencoe. All volunteer coaches are required to submit a background check and attend a pre-season meeting on Thursday, December 8.
