Volunteer Opportunities
 
There are a wide range of volunteer opportunities available to serve and give back to the league. All volunteers must submit current PA state background clearances. Below find ways to serve, get to know other families, and make a difference in others lives:
 
*Gym night captain- this individual sets up practice facilities and is present in the building to help assist and facility practices.
 
*Practice Night Parent- This individual will have access to facilities during practice times to help athletes and coaches enter and exit the building and provide additional assistance to coaching staff or athletes.
 
*Coach/Assistant Coach- Many individuals believe the best way to impact a life and make a difference is to serve as a coach for an Upward team. Upward provides practice night plans, drills, and plays, plus game day assistance through easy to navigate coach’s app available for download through Google/Apple app stores.
 
*Video Streaming Team- Help bring live action game play into the homes of family members and friends that might otherwise not be able to be present to watch the games.
