Coaching

All Laker Youth Basketball coaches are selected by LOHS varsity basketball staff.  Assistant coaches are chosen by the head coach of each individual team subject to the approval of LOHS varsity basketball staff.

For the 2021-22 season, Laker Youth Basketball head coaches will be selected on the following basis:

Grades 4-5:  Coaches will be volunteers for all teams.  Family members of players are eligible to serve as coaches.

Grades 6-8: Head coaches will be paid non-family members for all teams.  These coaches will be paid by LOYTBA.  Family members will also be ineligible to serve as assistant coaches.  LOYTBA does not pay assistant coaches.

Any exceptions to the above will be at the discretion of the LOHS varsity basketball staff and Laker Youth Board.

All coaches, whether volunteer or paid, must complete a coaching application and background check authorization, sign a contract/code of conduct and complete mandatory coach training, including online concussion training. All coach expenses related to required training are covered by LOYTBA. Note that for the 2021-22 season, we are requiring that all coaches need to be vaccinated for COVID-19 in order to coach.
