Coaches for youth basketball play a unique role. They have an opportunity to have an eternal impact on the lives of children and become a legendary figure when they remember their childhood. As a coach, you are a key part of the ministry and help provide the best sports experience for each child on your team. You will receive valuable tools and first class coaching materials to help you along the way. All coaches receive a coaches manual geared toward each season, information on the coaches section of the Upward website and a coaches shirt to wear on game day.
If you have any additional questions regarding coaching, please contact Jay Barton
Referees play an important role as on the court coaches to encourage fair play and understanding of the game. Referees manage the game by both enforcing the rules and encouraging/teaching those players on the court. By enforcing the rules the players will learn the game and gain an understanding of what it takes to make it at the next level of development. If you are interested in volunteering to referee we will provide training and support.
