Volunteer Coaches

Volunteer Coaching


Volunteer Coaches are our programs' greatest assets. We encourage parents to get involved and assist their child and others in having a positive and fun experience in the sport of their choice. We request that groups of 3 or more participants registering together provide a coach for their team. Please make sure that you fill in your name, phone number and e-mail in the coaches box of your child's registration form. A 50%-off voucher for future qualifying sports programs is available for head coaches once they have passed the Coaches Certification Program and has completed the season as a head coach.

Parents interested in coaching youth sports programs must submit the Coaches Volunteer Packet once a year, which includes the permission to run a background check. Please print this packet, fill it out, and return it to the front desk.

Save the form(s) to your computer to enable the filling of fields feature.


The Coaches Certification Program is available to educate coaches on the expectations of Salt Lake County. The purpose of this certification program is for children's safety, developing coaching skills, teaching good sportsmanship, and making sure that all coaches receive the same information.

This program is done online, and requires the coach to have a google account. 

Coach Certification Process/Instructions
1. All Coaches Certification applicants need to complete training online.
