Volunteer Coaches Wanted
All City of Henderson Parks and Recreation Department youth sports leagues rely solely on volunteer coaches. Each volunteer is required to be certified through the National Youth Sports Coaches Association (NYSCA) and complete a background check. The certification is obtained by attending one of the training sessions offered each youth sports season. It consists of video presentations, group discussions and a short quiz based on the information discussed throughout the video.
Membership with NYSCA provides coaches with many benefits such as liability insurance, continuing education and access to many resources through the NYSCA Website. All coaches must maintain current membership status with NYSCA to be on the sidelines during games. The background check (including fingerprinting) can be completed by attending any NYSCA certification.
Show your community support by coaching Henderson's young athletes. If you are proficient in any sport or are willing to learn, donating three to five hours of your time each week is all that is needed. For more information, call (702) 267-5700.
Membership can be maintained by simply doing one of the following:
