Get your whistle ready – Our goal is to serve 500+ children in and around the city of Pontiac to begin with high quality experiences through recreational sports and relationships centered around character and integrity. This goal can only be accomplished with the help of volunteers willing to make a small commitment in order to make an impactful difference in the life of a child. We believe that a child is an accurate representation of the community where they are being raised. If you would like to make a difference in shaping that community, here is your opportunity.

As a coach, you will have the unique privilege to interact with children and their families and assist in the rebuilding of the community. We have programmed our leagues in such a way that if you are gracious enough to make an 11 week commitment for 16 total hours you can make a difference in at least one child’s life.
