*VOLUNTEER COACHES NEEDED
The Boys and Girls Recreation Basketball Leagues cannot begin until we have volunteer coaches for all the teams in that league. Extensive basketball knowledge/playing experience are not required. We look for coaches who will provide a safe, fun and educational experience while setting nothing less than the best example for players. All coaches must submit to a background check and attend the pre-season coaches meeting.
Vernon Parks and Recreation Department will comply with all COVID-19 guidelines from federal, state and local agencies. Guidelines may be adjusted throughout the program as COVID-19 guidelines are updated by federal, state and local agencies.
Currently, masks are REQUIRED AT ALL TIMES within the building. This includes while participating in the activity. Evaluations, games and practices.
