Prince George's County Boys and Girls Club

Welcome Prince George's County Boys & Girls Club coaches!

Prince George's County Boys & Girls Club in partnership with Human Kinetics Coach Education allows boys and girls club coaches to take the course online. All coaches and assistant coaches are required to have completed the course prior to the start of the season.

The courses are a major source of information for coaches. Remember, our coaches are dealing with young children who want to learn and enjoy a sport. The communication between adults and children within that sport is vital. Human Kinetics courses are a tool to improve the skills in teaching and talking to the children.

Please notify all coaches who have not yet been certified to take the course as soon as possible. Thank you for your cooperation in this matter.

To order online courses, just click on the corresponding online course icon in the table at the bottom of the page.
