Ways to Volunteer
The Detroit PAL coaches are vital to the success of our players and programs. If you’re interested in making an impact on the lives of the youth of Detroit, we hope you’ll consider becoming a coach with Detroit PAL.
We’re always looking for scorekeepers, volunteers who want to help out with landscaping and field preparation, assistant coaches and team managers.
If you’d like to organize a corporate volunteering day with Detroit PAL, please contact Jenna Taylor at firstname.lastname@example.org.
IMPACT Training for Detroit PAL Coaches
Our IMPACT Training & Certification Program was developed in partnership with Michigan State University’s Institute for the Study of Youth Sports. This proprietary 3- year course teaches coaches how to be mentors while keeping kids first. The certification includes a yearly background check and a credentialed badge.
All training sessions are held at the Detroit PAL office, located at 1680 Michigan Ave, Detroit, MI 48216.
IMPACT Training Program
New coaches are required to take three levels of IMPACT training in three consecutive years.
First Year: Level 1 | Second Year: Level 2 | Third Year: Level 3
IMPACT Continuing Education
Veteran coaches must attend an ICE (IMPACT Continuing Eduction) course each year.
