Information for Managers and Coaches
Sign up to manage/coach while signing up for child for a season. At the end of registration, there will be a button that allows you (the adult) to register to volunteer. We greatly appreciate everyone who dedicates their time to coaching our kids at the park. The park could not exist without your help!! That said, before you can manage/coach, you are required to be credentialed through BYSA (per Hillsborough County regulatations). In order to be obtain your park badge, you must have the following:
1. Background Check.
BYSA performs a background check at no cost to you. If you have never coached at BYSA before, you must first fill out a Volunteer Application form. This form provides the necessary information and consent for your background check. This form can be filled out and sent to Robyn Eldard, BYSA's Volunteer Coordinator (email@example.com).
2. Coaching Certification.
There are two ways you can obtain your coaching certification. Hillsborough County offers free, in-person coaching certification classes. You can register and get information for these classes here. You can also take an online training class through NAYS (National Alliance for Youth Sports). The online class costs $20 and is good for a year (although you can pay more for a longer membership). Once you receive your membership card from either of these classes, you must take a picture and send it to Robyn Eldard, BYSA's Volunteer Coordinator (firstname.lastname@example.org).
3. Concussion Training.
Concussion training is included in the free classes offered through Hillsborough County Parks and Rec. You can also complete free concussion training through the websites below. Again, you must send proof of completation to Robyn Eldard, BYSA's Volunteer Coordinator (email@example.com).
