How to become an AMBA coach:

  2. Read over AMBAs Volunteer Screening Policy
  3. Fill out AMBAs Volunteer Application Form and return it via email or mail.
  4. We’ll let you know if your child’s team is still in need of a coach and send you information on obtaining an RCMP Vulnerable Sectors Check if we are moving forward with your coaching position.  If you have a Vulnerable Sectors Check that has been completed in the last three years, please forward a copy (scan or picture) to volunteer@airdriebasketball.ca
