Volunteer Coaching

Throughout the year, the Lakewood Youth Sports (LYS) program organizes coached teams and league play in youth baseball, softball, football, basketball and volley tennis.

Volunteer coaches are needed for baseball, softball and T-ball teams for the summer season at all Lakewood parks to help keep alive a tradition dating back to 1957, when volunteers were instrumental in making early Lakewood parks programs a reality.

Although moms and dads of players make great coaches, it’s not necessary to have a child playing to enjoy the volunteer experience. No coaching experience is necessary. Just being there makes a difference.

Interested? City staff will provide the appropriate training. Inquire at any Lakewood park for complete details or call 562-866-9771, extension 2408.
