Upcoming Season that we need Volunteers: 1st-5th Grade Basketball Coaches

 Why do YOU want to volunteer with CARD:
  • Coaches have the final decision on practice time and location. (Basketball Head Coaches choose their indoor practice slot based on when their application is received -turn in your application early!)
  • If you have had issues with CARD Coaches in the past- YOU get the opportunity to step up and lead a team.
  • You are truly making a difference in the community of Chico. Volunteer coaches are creating better athletes, but more importantly, better people by using youth sports as the vessel to teach invaluable life skills.
  • You get to spread a LOVE of the GAME!

The first step to applying to be a volunteer coach is to fill out the Volunteer Coach Application, and turn it into the CARD Office at 545 Vallombrosa Ave. Once we receive your application, we will email you within the next couple of weeks an update on meetings. The pre-season includes completing a background check (the background check must be completed through CARD). Volunteers are not eligible to start until they have completed their background check), attending a classroom meeting for new volunteers, and attending an on-site coaches meeting. Once the season starts, each team is required to have one practice a week (time/location is a the coaches discretion) and one game a week.
