Share Your Talent/Be a Coach

The Queensbury Department of Parks & Recreation is always looking for new ideas and talent. If you possess a skill and would like to lead a program, please contact Lori O’Shaughnessy to discuss your idea.

Volunteer! Be a Coach!

Coaching

The department sponsors and operates a number of youth sports leagues each year and we ask for your assistance in coaching the following youth sports:

  • Flag Football (fall)
  • Soccer (fall)
  • Basketball (winter)

These youth sports leagues are designed to be recreational level activities whereby children are learning basic concepts, exercising, being with their peer group and having FUN!

If you are willing to assist us by being a coach or an assistant coach, the department would greatly appreciate it.  Volunteer coaches are the life blood of these leagues – it couldn’t be done without your help!  Each interested coach must complete a volunteer coaching form and submit it to the parks and recreation office (see downloadable form).  Contact the office directly at 761-8216, if you have any specific questions.
