Want to get more involved? Become a coach!

The best way to really make a difference in the lives of our athletes is by becoming a coach in one of our 21 Olympics-style sports. No real sport-specific knowledge is required before becoming a coach because we have the resources to teach you the game even if you are a beginner. Coaches truly are an invaluable part of our team; we couldn't do it without them. Read our latest blog post to find out just how easy it is to become a coach and how quickly your life will be transformed once you do.
