Please note that in flag football there are a few extra games on days we wouldn't normally play.  We consulted with the flag football coaches, who decided to play those games to ensure that each team plays at least once to determine a true regular season champion.

Make a difference the in the life of a child- become a volunteer coach!  VLPRA is always looking for dedicated, patient, caring coaches.  We provide a variety of youth sports which means there are a lot of teams that need leaders.  It doesn't matter if you played in the pros or if you just enjoy a little game of catch, there is a spot for you!

We have football, baseball, softball, cheerleading, soccer, basketball, and volleyball.  Coaching positions are easier to fill in some sports than in others.  If you have any knowledge of any of these sports and would like to volunteer, please call Jesse at 333-1853 for baseball/softball/tball and soccer.  Call Rachel at 259-3507 for volleyball.  Every volunteer coach must pass a background check and receive a badge before he or she is allowed to attend practices or games in a coaching capacity.  Your background check is good for one year, so you can coach several sports if you like.  If you already coach for us, please be aware of when your background check expires and come see us to re-up.  

Thanks for your interest in volunteering- local kids need you!
