Youth Baseball Coaches Needed
If you enjoy baseball and like working with kids, then consider volunteering as a youth baseball coach. Time commitment consists of a one-hour weekly practice, plus games on Saturdays. All Mecklenburg County Park and Recreation coaches undergo a background check by the department and are trained and certified through the National Youth Sports Coaches Association. If interested in being a volunteer coach, please contact the recreation center nearest you or Lori Saylor, volunteer coordinator, at 704-353-0504.
