Volunteers don’t necessarily have the time; they have the heart.
- Elizabeth Andrew
Volunteer coaches are the backbone of youth programs throughout the country. Without the help of thousands of parents signing up to coach youth sports every season, youth sports programs would cease to exist. Volunteerism is one of the highest forms of recreation! Volunteering can have a positive impact on both your personal and professional life. If you are passionate about sports or leisure activities, please share your love with kids in our community. The Sibley Recreation Department believes that winning has less to do with the scoreboard and more to do with core values of sportsmanship, friendship, and having fun.
