We are looking for volunteers to help coach and referee. The great thing about coaching Upward Basketball is that you don’t have to be a basketball expert or know a lot about basketball to coach. Each coach and referee is provided with a coaches manual that scripts everything you need to know right down to making practice plans and providing drills to teach the participants. All you have to do is want to help kids grow and learn more about Jesus and basketball.
If interested please contact Mark Rave at 513.439.4372 or email at firstname.lastname@example.org or Cheryl Wood, Children’s Ministry Team Leader at email@example.com.
