Thinking of coaching?
Looking for a volunteer opportunity that will put a smile on your face? Pick 6 Sports is always looking for great people to serve as role models to help mentor, develop, and make it fun for the kids!
Our Flag Football league is built on great volunteer coaches. All of our coaches for our leagues are volunteer coaches. Pick 6 Sports provides our coaches with great tools, training, and resources for all of our coaches to be successful.
Why volunteer to coach?
- Spend quality time with your kids while being active on the football field. Take it from us whose kids are now to old for youth sports, we have created a lot of fun lifetime memories with our kids and their friends out on the football field.
- Coaching doesn't require a big time commitment. Most parents are going to be out watching their kids practice and play, so why not get involved? Time commitment is the same as your child's time commitment for the most part. Coaches may spend 10 to 15 minutes a sending an email out to the team or making a quick practice plan over your morning cup of coffee.
- Where else can you turn off your phone for 2 hours and just focus on your kids?
- Pick 6 Sports does provide tools for all coaches to be successful. Check out our Fundamentals of the Week program and Play Card.
- Have the opportunity to pick your Team your kid wants to represent this season.
- Most importantly it is a chance to have fun, while making the game a positive experience for kids in your community. Its not about the wins or losses, it is about how help build self confidence in kids that allow them to excel in other aspects of life.

It is easy to sign up to be a volunteer coach! There are 3 simple steps that should take you less than 5 minutes to complete. If you are planning on coaching a team this season, we recommend coaches do this right away as it helps us get your team reserved in our system and we will start placing kids on your team as they sign up. This helps you have access to who has signed up. (This can be done prior to signing up your child)
Step 1 - Complete the TeamSnap Registration form to allow us to quickly gather information on your team, what NFL Mascot you want to be, who should be on your team and gets you into the system. Every coach should complete this form for each season you are coaching.
Step 2 - Background Check - We require all volunteer coaches to complete a background check 1 time each calendar year. We do use Backgroundchecks.com one of the leaders in the industry for youth sports. The process is very easy as it will ask you to create a quick account, fill out a few pieces of information and then hit submit.
Step 3 - Coaches Clinic - Pick 6 Sports does put on a coaches clinic each season. Our main process for these is done via webinar. Simply sign up for the date that works for you or watch the offline recording. The replay link will be published after the 1st webinar of each season. We strongly recommend all new coaches attend and this is a good format for coaches to ask any questions on rules, how to use TeamSnap, format or schedule questions.
