Redwood City’s PAL Basketball League Seeking Coaches

Redwood City, CA - January 9, 2003 - Redwood City PAL announces a great opportunity to help at-risk kids, and have a great time doing it! Volunteer coaches are needed for the upcoming season of 6th grade boys and girls basketball, as part of the Police Activities League Basketball program.

With a small commitment of time, volunteers can make a great difference in the life of the youth of Redwood City. Basketball games and practices will be held at Red Morton Community Center, Peninsula Boys and Girls Club, or Garfield School, Monday through Thursday in the afternoon and early evening. Most teams will play twice a week, and practice once a week in between game days. Volunteer coaches must complete a Volunteer Registration Form and be cleared through a fingerprinting process.

Volunteering to coach at-risk kids in PAL’s basketball program will make a difference in someone’s life – and make a difference in the volunteer’s life as well. Contact Rick Brown at the number above, or email, for complete information.
