Procedure for becoming a Volunteer Coach with the Reynoldsburg Parks and Recreation Department:

For anyone to become a Volunteer Coach with us (head coach or assistant coach), the interested person must complete a Volunteer Coach Application. Most of you are familiar with the application as it is required every season of every sport. This means that if you coach 3 sports in a given year (i.e. – soccer, baseball, basketball), we would require three applications. The reason for this is that we run a new background check on every volunteer coach prior to that specific season. This is far & away beyond the recommended standard but we feel it is a measure worth investing in for the safety of the families participating.

The background checks that we run on all applicants is through the NYSCA (National Youth Sports Coaches Association). This is the most widely used system in the country for public Parks & Recreation Departments such as ours. Only applicants who pass the background check are eligible to become volunteer coaches. Every coach is required to pass the background check to become eligible to volunteer with us in any capacity (head coach or assistant coach). We spend a considerable amount of time collecting applications, running the background checks and confirming who is eligible to volunteer & who is not.

Again, the safety of the kids is the number one priority of all our programs. Our commitment to running background checks every season of every sport for every volunteer coach reflects this. If you have any questions regarding this issue – please call the office to further discuss.
