Volunteer coaching is a great way for you to show your support, share your time and share your knowledge of sport with the Mary Immaculate School community. Volunteer coaches are the mainstay of the athletics program, enabling hundreds of students to participate in sports at MIS.
Typically, coach volunteers for a particular sport are solicited a month or so before the sport starts, as well as in a general call for coaches at the beginning of the year. Ideally, each team will have a coach who has knowledge and experience with the sport, as well as a positive approach in dealing with the particular age group they are coaching.
Coaches meetings are held before each season to discuss the expectations of the coach, athlete, and the parents.
All prospective coaches must go through the Safe Environment training and pass a background check prior to having any contact with a student in athletics. The Dallas Parochial League requires mandatory training for all volunteer coaches through the Play Like A Champion training program. This training is offered at various schools throughout the year to provide our volunteers with a coaching technique that develops maturity, spirit and athletics.
Anyone who would like to apply to coach a team needs to contact the Athletic Director at 972-243-7105 x115.
