Have a passion for Coaching or Refereeing or both and enjoy working with kids? Then we have a place for you! We are currently recruiting coaches and officials for our 2013-2014 Upward Basketball Season.
Coaching commitments consist of attending Coach Training, preparing for and leading one 1-hour practice each week during the weekday, preparing for and coaching one 1-hour game on Saturdays, and investing in the lives of K-5th grade boys and girls.
Referee commitments consist of attending Referee Training, regular and consistent communication with the Referee Coordinator for scheduling purposes, refereeing games that take place each Saturday. Referees will also need to be prepared to have a whistle, black shorts, and black athletic shoes. We will provide referee shirts.
If you are interested in either or both of these roles please fill out our Coach Application or Referee Application which can be found to the right of this page under "Get Involved". A Safe Harbor Application will also need to be completed which is our Child Protection and Safety Background Check. This form is also available in online format to the right under "Get Involved" as well.
NOTE: If you have previously filled out a Youth Sports Coach Application for 2013 for any of our other Youth Sports you will need to "edit" your current application on file. Going to the link to the right will not let you update your application. Below are the instructions on how to update your current application.
