Volunteer coaches needed

With the continued expansion of the Port St. Lucie Parks & Recreation Junior Basketball Program, Volunteer Head and Assistant Coaches, and Volunteer Scorekeepers are needed more than ever. Nearly 900 players ages 6 to 17 participate in this program year round.

For parents and family members of players, coaching a team is a great way to spend more time with your child while they enjoy their favorite sport. Anyone passionate about basketball is encouraged to volunteer their time and help make this popular program successful.

Volunteer coaches must be 18 years of age or older and score keepers must be 16 years of age or older. All volunteers must fill out an application and undergo an FDLE Level II background clearance process.
