Have you ever thought about coaching soccer or hoops? Becoming a youth sports coach can be a rewarding experience. By becoming a coach with PPA we'll train you to coach the PPA way; to develop players between the lines and outside them.

The benefit of coaching with PPA is that we have teams at all levels. So whether you come to us with lots of coaching experience or none at all, we can find a team that fits your level. We also offer flexible scheduling. This means you can tell us which weekdays your available, and we'll try to match you with teams with aligning schedules. 


Our programs range from Kindergarten rec teams to elite level, nationally ranked travel teams. We also have a range of coaches on staff, from elite level professionally licensed coaches who compete at the highest levels, to recreational coaches who work with teams to inspire fun and play.
