City of Lapeer Parks & Recreation sport programs depend entirely on volunteers to coach our youth! Without your help these programs would not exist. Our coaches main priorities is to provide kids with a positive learning experience that promotes skill & character development, confidence, sportsmanship, and most importantly fun. Remember kid's first winning second and always lead by example!
Requirements to becoming a coach:
1) Must be at least 18 years old and have general knowledge and experience with the sport/program that you signed up to coach. (If you are under 18 you may still coach, however you must have an assistant coach/parent who is over 18 with you at all times).
2) Successfully pass our Background Check process. You can pick up a copy of the paperwork at the Community Center or print it off here. Return the completed form in a sealed envelope to the City of Lapeer Community Center front desk.
3) Complete the linked Heads-Up Concussion Training Video and provide us with a copy of your certificate proving that you have indeed completed the training. If you plan to coach in the future you will not have to take the training again. The certificate must be on file with the Parks & Recreation Department prior to coaching.
Certificate will look like this =>
4) Must attend the mandatory coaches meeting prior to the start of the season. You will be notified of time, date, and location of the meeting by a staff member at least three days prior to the meeting.
