CityParks Play plays a central role in activating our mission to create vibrant and healthy urban communities through dynamic free sports programs in parks across New York City. We provide free instruction, coaching and equipment to more than 7,000 kids, ages 6 to 17, in nearly 60 locations citywide.
Join our seasonal coaching staff and help us keep NYC kids active this summer! We train and hire instructors to teach free beginner lessons to children from July through mid-August. Sessions are generally held on weekday mornings in parks across the city.
Volunteer opportunities are available each year for high school athletes to get involved and assist our coaches at CPF’s free sports programs. Participants receive in-the field experience while receiving HS volunteer credit and building valuable life and team-building skills.
