Istrouma Sports is a gospel-centered sports ministry of Istrouma Baptist Church that intentionally creates opportunities to glorify God and make disciples through sports and recreation.
Our ministry thrives from those who volunteer their time to help us do sports a different way.
Coach @ Istrouma
Istrouma Sports is dependent on volunteer coaches. The number of teams in each division is determined by the number of coaches signed up to volunteer.
We equip our coaches so they feel prepared and comfortable in this environment. Please don’t hesitate to coach if you have never done so before.
Our volunteers will go through a vetting process and will be expected to meet the coaches’ requirements throughout the season.
Indicate on your child’s registration and submit an application below if you are interested in volunteering as a head coach, assistant coach, or bench monitor this season. Sign up as a head coach on registration to save some money!
Istrouma Sports has a four-step vetting process for head coaches, assistant coaches, and bench monitors.
Applicants may not be asked to coach.
Our questionnaires expire every calendar year. New coaches must watch our development video and complete a questionnaire before applying.
All coaches must submit an application each season.
3. Background Check
Our background checks expire every two years. All new coaches must fill out a background check. Returning coaches will be notified if their form has expired.
Istrouma will follow up with coaches once forms have been submitted.

Officiate @ Istrouma
We are always in need of officials. Parents appreciate when their kids’ games are officiated consistently and confidently. We want to give parents and players the best youth sports experience; a large part of that comes from our officials.
