Boulder Valley Lacrosse COACHING INFORMATION PAGE
Boulder Valley Lacrosse encourages you to consider coaching with us in the upcoming season.
Lacrosse experience is helpful, but not required-- a positive, enthusiastic approach to youth sports is mandatory !
If you can help organize and inspire young athletes, you are welcome to coach with us. We have a tremendous supply of players and we are always looking to add new coaches to our program.
We have an extensive support system and training approach in place for new coaches. We understand that coaches have to place careers and families first, so we work to assign coaches in a “tag-team” fashion. We’ll pair you with other BVL coaches, working cooperatively to insure that every practice and every game has coverage even if you can’t be there.
Become part of the fun and fast-growing BVL Lacrosse Community ! We promote the Positive Coaching approach to create a relaxed yet competitive atmosphere centered around the fastest game on two feet.
If you’re interested in playing as well as coaching, many BVL coaches also participate in our mens' drop-in group on Sundays at the Arapahoe YMCA and our mens teams in the Mile High Lacrosse League. Each summer, we enter a Supermasters (40+) team into the Vail Shootout.
Experience the pride of serving as a role model and leader for our youth as a coach.
Parent coaches will receive one complimentary registration per season for child after completing a full spring or fall season coaching with us. Non-parent coaches may be eligible for a moderate paid stipend.
BVL coaches will receive complimentary logo apparel, including polo shirts, hats, sweatshirts, and t-shirts. All BVL head coaches will also receive complimentary US Lacrosse membership.
Every BVL coach must complete our online Coaches Registration (scroll to bottom of registration page): https://leagueathletics.com/Registration/Default.asp?org=boulderlacrosse.org

Be sure to hit "Submit" to finalize the Coaches Registration with us once you have completed our form.
Every BVL coach must take the online “Heads Up” Concussion Awareness Course available at www.cdc.gov/concussion. This is required of all youth sports coaches by Colorado State Law.
