Volunteers

To deliver the quality program you expect from us at HPL, we need volunteers. Some volunteer positions work directly with players and others do not. Some positions conclude before games even start. Please consider coaching your child or working as a team mom or dad. Previous basketball knowledge is not required to be a coach. Coaches are able to choose their own practice times. If you are willing to help, we will work with your schedule any way we can! Every volunteer at our park is also a busy parent. If you have any questions, please contact the director.
