Coaches Job Description

The coaches job description has been adopted by the SLP Panther Basketball Club Board of Directors as a way to help develop the right coaching culture for our organization to best serve our players and families. All coaches need to preview this job description and be prepared to carry out the duties and responsibilities that it describes.

All head and assistant coaches, for both the traveling and recreational programs are required to pass a Trusted Coaches background check and concussions screening. Background checks must be completed annually and concussion screening every 3 years. Coaches that are "flagged" through the Trusted Coaches background screening process will be immediately removed from any coaching position. Please review the Trusted Coaches Disclosure for more details.

Trusted Coaches


The SLP club partners with the Trusted Coaches organization to help us ensure all head coaches receive a comprehensive background check. We want your child to have the best and safest basketball experience possible.
