Basketball Coaches Needed

Long Branch Athletic Association, a program of the IMPACT network, is looking for coaches to help tomorrow’s best and brightest basketball players.  LBAA is an independent non-profit organization whose goal is to create opportunities for low-income and immigrant children to play team sports. The teams comprised of boys and girls from the east Silver Spring community will range from 3rd grade to 12th grade. Practices will begin in December with games beginning the first weekend in January. Practices and games extend through the month of February. Team coaching in groups of 2-3 is encouraged. New coaches are also encouraged, as most participants are also new to the sport.

Coaching responsibilities include:

  1. One 1 hour practice per week and one 1 hour game on a Saturday or Sunday.  Practices and games depend on age group and gym availability.
  2. Ensuring rides to and from practices and games in coordination with other coaches and parents.
  3. Creating a positive, fun and rewarding atmosphere for players and parents to become more involved in team sports and community life.

Please join LBAA in our effort to ensure that ALL youth in our community experience the benefits of playing team sports.

For more information, please contact Sebastian Brown at (814) 506-4543 or sebastian@impactsilverspring.org
