Our Volunteer Requirement
Coyotes Lacrosse is a volunteer organization and needs all families on board, playing an active role in the club. A strong volunteer base is necessary and rewarding – it provides a strong sense of community and enables us to achieve our objectives as a club while limiting out costs.
A complete list of volunteer and staff roles along with their job descriptions can be found below.
As a part of registration, each family is required to designate two volunteer roles the family would be willing to fulfill.
Our head coaches are a mix of parent volunteers with experience in the game and hired non-parent coaches with more recent playing and coaching experience. Our assistant coaches are almost exclusively parents with varying degrees of lacrosse and coaching experience. We encourage all of you to consider helping as a coach regardless of your experience base.
Please reach out directly to
with any questions or regarding your interest in volunteering.
