Community involvement can directly impact the youth served and the skills they develop through their experience with First Dink. Consider becoming a coach or volunteer today and help give the youth of today the tools they will continue to use tomorrow and throughout the rest of their lives.

We are looking for coaches – all experience levels are welcome

At First Dink, we help youth discover what’s inside of them, guide them to strengthen it and mentor them to put it into action in everything they do. To do this, we need enthusiastic and caring individuals to serve as positive mentors and role models to youth of various backgrounds.

Our coaches’ ability to develop impactful relationships with our participants is at the core of what our program is all about. You don’t have to be a Pickleball pro (or even a 4.0 player), we will provide the training you need!

Our training system is built on research-proven methods of positive youth development, providing coaches with the tools to make youth feel safe, included and empowered.

If you have a passion to make a difference and want to become a coach, please reach out to us at

Volunteers are also needed off the court

We rely on volunteers to accomplish our mission, and not all of those goals involve Pickleball.

These opportunities include:

  • Fundraising/Events

  • Operations/Administration

  • Mentoring/Tutoring

  • In-school/After School programming support

By contributing your time and talent, you can directly make a positive impact in a young person's life.

There are many reasons to partner with our organization, and we look forward to discussing the opportunities further.  First Dink desires to partner with companies and foundations that  align with our own guiding principles.

Key factors for evaluation include the partner’s ability to leverage its assets, raise awareness, contribute/raise funds, and engage its employees and leadership on all levels for insightful impact.

  • First Dink does not endorse products, promote the sale of products or mandate that  members endorse, purchase or sell any product or service.

  • All partnerships involve a minimum financial commitment at each level of support.

We look forward to discussing how your company, your customers and your employees can help improve the lives of young people through a partnership with First Dink.
