Free Footie supports youth from vulnerable and marginalized communities to play sport entirely for free. This includes free transportation, uniforms, equipment, coaching, games and registration fees.
Our goal is to use sport as way for kids to make friends, find a place to belong and be surrounded by great coaches/mentors who believe in them.
We are actively recruiting those coaches/mentors to work with our youth!
You will coach youth between the ages of 8-12 in multiple sports (primarily soccer and basketball). This includes coaching during games and delivering practice plans provided by the head coach. These practices not only incorporate skills in the sport of the season, but also learning in social, emotional and mental health.
You will also be paired with a youth from high school who is learning to be a coach. These youth are often graduates of our Free Footie program. The youth will act as your assistant coach and your role will be to mentor the youth and prepare them to step into the role of a head coach in future.
Who we are looking for:
Program Schedule & Time requirements: 3-4 hours per week
Our Commitment to You:
If you are taking care of our kids, we will take care of you. We are highly committed to investing in our coaches/mentors to pursue additional training, certifications and experiences that will make you a better mentor & help your gain bigger and better jobs within our organization or beyond. If you have the initiative to gain additional training and certification, we will pay.
