Referee Training


Each year we offer youth opportunities for financial incentives by matching them with local sport organizations who may need personnel to work as table referees or clock technicians.  We also provide opportunities for youth to work as Jr. Coaches and Jr. Referees. We believe that these opportunities are a launching pad for our youth to explore their interest in other elements of the professional sports industry. 

Junior Coach: The goal of this position is to have youth participants shadow a head coach in their chosen sport.  The Junior Coach (Jr. Coach) is a volunteer and paid position. During the school year, the Junior Coach can volunteer to work alongside any of our volunteer coaches in their sport of choice. The volunteer position may be used as a service learning project/high school community service credit project, internship, or other high school credit project upon agreement of the School and Village of Champions Director of Sports. During the summer, the Junior Coach registers with Philadelphia Youth Network (PYN) and completes Village of Champions Sports Job Readiness.
