Volunteer coaches needed: Are you looking for one of the most rewarding jobs around? If so, the Gilbert Parks and Recreation Department has the one for you! We are currently recruiting volunteer coaches for our upcoming Youth Spring Ball Program. Parents and friends are encouraged to learn ways in which they can contribute to a child's growth through participation in sports. Volunteering to be a coach not only gives you the opportunity to learn more about the sport itself, it also gives you the chance to get involved with your child and his or her friends. Background checks are done on volunteer coaches.
