CLBL is proud to offer a Youth Coach Development Program, giving High School and Middle School students opportunities to join our coaching staff. We work to position each youth coach in a situation in which they can succeed, developing the skills and confidence to grow as a coach, a leader, and a volunteer in their community. CLBL provides training both in how to teach the skills of basketball, and in how to best communicate and connect with the players to motivate them to achieve their best.
Middle School Students: Will be Assistant Coaches to adult head coaches
High School Students: Can be Assistant Coaches, or can apply to be selected as a Head Coach (requires additional interview)
Youth coach registration is a bit different from our adult registration (where coaches are automatically connected to their child). Youth coaches register and are placed in a pool of applicants, and are then assigned to positions throughout the league based on where the coaching vacancies / needs are. During registration, you will be asked for any preferences on where you would like to coach (preferred grade levels, boys only, girls only, etc.) and we will do our best to accommodate those requests. We also ask for your experience in the sport of basketball, and any experience leading children (camp counselor, Sunday school teacher, tutoring, etc.) to ensure we know all we can to place you in a position to succeed. If you have no experience leading children, that’s fine. You will be placed with a head coach that will help develop those skills!
