Youth Programs

Coaching Youth Sports
"The outcome of the child is more important than the outcome of the game." We truly believe that here at the City of El Dorado Recreation Department. To that end, we are looking for sports savvy coaches who are responsible, encouraging, organized, and trustworthy. If that's you, please call us today at 316-321-9100.

Coaches must protect their own child and have the option of protecting additional players depending on the sport. Coaching clinics are offered periodically. Please call the Recreation Department for more information.
