Kelowna Kodiak’s Street Soccer

The Kelowna Kodiak’s Street Soccer team is looking for another committed volunteer to join the team!

We are looking for another committed volunteer/coach who is interested in spending 1-2 days a week and the occasional weekend (once or twice a summer) with the team.

This Street Soccer team is an official program of Inn From the Cold – Kelowna and is comprised of local marginalized individuals who are experiencing or at risk of homelessness. The aim of the team is to improve the lives of those in need by providing an athletic outlet to develop skills that can be transferred into everyday life. The Kodiak’s currently play in Kelowna’s Urban Recreation Co-ed League, and aim to practice once a week.

If you are interested in joining the team and gaining some valuable and unique volunteer experience, please contact Coach Ashley at ashley.sagan@gmail.com.
