Youth Sports Coach Job Description

The coach in youth sports is the person who leads a team and teaches them the rules of play and techniques of the sport.

Coaches in youth sports are usually paid professionals, but retired professionals may also act as coaches.

Children become interested in sports at an early age, so coaches for team sports such as baseball, basketball, football, soccer, and softball usually begin their careers as high school players.

Coaches usually specialize in one sport, such as baseball, soccer, or volleyball.

Some coaches specialize in coaching specific positions, such as goalkeepers, catchers, or point guards.
