Serve Our Students & Parishioners as a CYO Volunteer

Each season, St. Patrick School seeks enthusiastic volunteers to direct and inspire our young athletes with values of community, faith, and sportsmanship.

Volunteer Opportunities

Our volunteer roles consist of Head Coaches and Assistant Coaches for boys and girls regional teams. Your family or child must be a registered active member of St. Patrick Parish and/or attend St. Patrick School in order for you to be eligible to volunteer.

Volunteer Requirements

The State of Pennsylvania and the Archdiocese of Philadelphia have very strict requirements for anyone who wishes to be a coach or volunteer. Please review the requirements below and make sure you have taken all the steps to be a volunteer. Send each completed clearance and certificate of completion for training to Barb King in the St. Patrick Parish office at bking@stpatrickmalvern.org.

You must fill out a Consideration to be Coach or Director Form to be considered for a coaching or volunteer position.
