Our awesome volunteers are what makes our programs so special. If you can volunteer 3-4 hours a week during the basketball season, we can use your help! We are looking for dedicated people who are interested in spreading a "love of the game" while helping youth in a positive and safe environment.

Volunteers should have played and/or coached basketball before, and are comfortable planning progressive practices that focus on building fundamentals for a variety of skill levels on one team. An emphasis is placed on switching the youth sports paradigm from the "total points/final score = winning" to "learning/progress = winning." CARD focuses on creating an positive environment that creates better athletes, but more importantly, better people. We want to spread a "love of the game" to spark lifelong interests in sports.
