Interested in Becoming a Youth Sports Coach?

The Youth Sports & Fitness program is always seeking volunteer coaches! Volunteer coaches play a vital role in the success of our program and impact the Fort Leonard Wood community on a daily basis. Volunteer coaches can earn promotion points from volunteer hours, may add coaching to their resume, and receive the benefit of coaching your own child(ren) for free or discounted rate.


All Youth Sports & Fitness coaches are required to complete an extensive background check and become NYSCA (National Youth Sports Coaches Association) certified coach for free! Coaches are required to attend a pre-season meeting and the opportunity to attend a free coach’s clinic. Coaches can anticipate volunteering for approximately 3 hours per week.
