Coaching Standards

To be a coach, you should be able to safely manage team sports and activities and maintain a level of professionalism while representing Terrebonne Parish Recreation. We require all coaches to undergo regular background screenings and safety training and abide by the Coach's Code of Conduct outlined in our Coach & Volunteer Manual.

Background Screening

A background screening is required for each coach once every two years.

Prospective coaches may be disqualified for criminal offenses including sexual offenses, felonies against a person, crimes involving children, and misdemeanors within the past 7 years.

Safety Training

Required safety training for coaches includes:

  • Louisiana Act 314 Concussion Protocol Certfication
  • CPR/AED/First Aid Certification provided by local services at no cost to the participant
  • Mandated Reporter Training for identifying and reporting child abuse or neglect

Additional resources on Concussion Safety can be found here.

Code of Conduct

All coaches are expected to live up to the Coach's Code of Conduct, which emphasizes teamwork and sportsmanship. Coaches are expected to be role models, leaders, and ensure the health and safety of all participants. The use of tobacco products and abusive or profane language is forbidden.

See our Coach & Volunteer Manual for the full Code of Conduct and other policies.
