SUFFOLK, Va. (WAVY) — Suffolk Parks & Recreation is currently looking for volunteer coaches for the upcoming winter youth sports.

The winter sports include basketball, indoor soccer, and cheerleading.

City officials say their goals are to “create a positive environment that promotes self-confidence and self-esteem through sports.”

Age levels for the noted winter youth sports are 4-5 years old, 6-7 years old, 8-10 years old, 11-12 years old, and 13-15 years old.

For those interested in applying but unsure of their coaching level skills, Suffolk Parks & Recreation officials say they will assist all volunteers in becoming a National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) certified coach.

Practices will start the week of December 6th, and games begin on January 7, 2022.

For information about how to become a volunteer coach and scheduling, call the athletic department at (757) 514-7270, or email
