Youth Volunteer Coaches


Coaches are needed for the city’s youth sports programs.  Surprise Youth Sports Staff is available to give our volunteer coaches the information and confidence they need to have a successful season. All coaches will be fingerprinted and must clear a background check.

Come be a part of the team! Call 623.222.2236 for more information.
