The largest youth sports program in Torrance is in need of your help.

The basketball program is looking for more than 200 coaches. The program has 2,500 players signed up.

Officials say to volunteer as coach, you must be 17 years old, be able to pass a background check, and take part in training. The training is put on by the National Alliance for Youth Sports, and can be done online or on-site.

The fee to play basketball is $69 dollars, but if you are a volunteer coach or coaching your child, you will receive a full refund at the end of the season.

Coaches set their own practice time and place, but on average for the season it’s about 24 hours of commitment. The season is eight weeks, and there is one game per week.
