    All leagues for 5th grade and below are coached by a volunteer CARD coach. Each team will have approximately one practice and one game a week during the season (this may vary slightly by the team). Coaches are required to put an emphasis on creating better athletes, and more importantly, better people by using youth sports as a vessel to learn life skills.

    Please complete the below steps to volunteer:

    Step 1: Complete a CARD Volunteer Application. Click here to complete.

    • If you are a new volunteer, you are required to complete a livescan/background check. Click here to make an appointment at the CARD Office, 545 Vallombrosa Ave. Make sure to bring your driver's license to the appointment!

    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 and one game a week.

    We Need YOU to Volunteer

    Our awesome volunteers are what makes our programs so special. If you can volunteer 3-4 hours a week during the season, we can use your help! We are looking for dedicated people who are interested in spreading a "love of the game" while helping youth in a positive and safe environment. Each position requires getting fingerprinted, attending a pre-season and on-site meeting, holding one practice a week during the season, and attending games.
