City of Pleasanton: Sports

PYB Head Coach

Make an Impact Today!

The City of Pleasanton’s Library and Recreation Department is looking for individuals who want to get involved and coach youth basketball. Pleasanton Youth Basketball (PYB) needs you this season (Nov. - Feb.)! Without volunteer coaches, this program would not be successful. Please consider making the two-hour per week commitment. The Head coach is  able to choose 1 player to play on their team.


Don't have any basketball experience, we have you covered!


The City of Pleasanton’s Library and Recreation Department will be offering a variety of free Coaches Clinics this season. Several basketball coaches from the Tri-Valley area have generously volunteered their time to put on each of these coaches clinics. We highly encourage you to attend any and all clinics. Each clinic will have a different emphasis and will provide you with the necessary tools for coaching. You will receive training on how to run an effective and efficient practice for your team. More information on time and location to come!
