Using the Power of Sports to Change Lives

WE MATCH YOU + VOLUNTEERS

INCREASE YOUR CAPACITY

You supply the sports program, we refer new coaches. It’s truly that simple!

Interested coaches will find you on our map and request to connect. You will receive their contact information instantly to get them started. You can manage all coach referrals in your Partner Portal and let us know if you would like to release a coach to a different program. You decide who is right for your teams.

The Partner Portal is your place to:

  • Request new coaches* 
  • Confirm or redirect coach referrals* 
  • Monitor your coaches’ training progress and certifications 

*We believe that every child deserves a caring, well-trained coach. In our commitment to equity, we highlight and amplify the needs of only the partner organizations who serve primarily under-resourced communities to increase the number of coaches and role models your kids have access to.

A PARTNER FOR A SEASON,
A PARTNER FOR LIFE

Since 2002, Coaching Corps’ nationally recognized framework has supported over 600 afterschool programs with coach recruitment, training, and support services. We understand the unique challenges facing afterschool programs serving under-resourced communities, and we can bolster support your athletic programs at no cost to you or your families. We do this thanks to philanthropic support so that you can concentrate on being there for your kids, and we can help reduce barriers to ensure that all kids have the chance to thrive through sport.  

Our coach training and support provides the tools for coaches to be critical mentors creating an environment where players experience safety, trust, belonging, autonomy, and growth.
