Being a youth sports coach is a great and rewarding experience. Teach and mentor young athletes in a variety of games. Coaching only takes about three hours a week. After your first phone call to your players, you will not need to call them again, as all cancellations and other information is on any easy to access website. Another perk to coaching is you have the choice of your practice day, depending on availability of gym or field space.
