Athletic Coaches

Be a role model for the youth in our community by volunteering to coach a team for the Grayslake Park District.  Experience in the sport is not necessary.  We will provide sport specific training to set you and your team up for success.  Please call Brice Walsh at (847) 223-7529 or email him at bwalsh@glpd.com if you are interested in coaching any of our sports programs.  Coaches must be 16 years or older to be an Assistant Coach and 18 or older to be a Head Coach.

Throughout the year, we look for volunteer coaches for several youth sports leagues.
