Coaching

Graham Recreation & Parks prides itself on giving each child a great opportunity to learn the sports that they wish. It is the department’s duty to provide quality and skilled coaches to help those children learn. This page gives our volunteer coaches and prospective coaches the chance to view and print out the documents they receive upon becoming a coach or acquiring about coaching with the Graham Recreation & Parks Department.

All coaches must complete and pass a background check prior to becoming a coach and must also fill out a coaches information sheet. Each athletic season begins with a coaches meeting and all coaches are asked to turn in those forms at the meeting or prior to. Also, at the meeting, the coaches receive a coaches manual which describes their duties along with other information about their roll as coach.

We thank all of our coaches for their time and efforts as they help us teach children to grow in every aspect of life.
