Call For Coaches

Volunteer coaches, for ALL GRADES, are needed in the recreation league. Volunteers help make our basketball program a success. Time commitment: teams practice one night a week November-February and play one game a week on Saturdays from December to February (excluding holidays). Multiple games may be played in March for the playoffs depending on advancement and may consist of Saturdays and Sundays. High School Recreation coaches will have a commitment of Saturdays or Sundays from January-February. A great way to pay it forward. Please sign up below before October 21, 2022.

No experience required. Training available through the Pomperaug Basketball Community.

Thank you to all of the volunteers who continue to make Region 15 such a great community!
