I was looking on old subs and forums, but I couldn't find anything substantial. I know there are however a lot of applicants who have volunteer coaching, whether with youth or high schoolers; what would this be classified under? I've seen some mention it as community service, and others as teaching. In my situation, its volunteer coaching at local high school, but I will be a TA next semester so I don't want to sort of double down on teaching (sorry if this is coming off as naïve). Thank you for any response!

I put mine as community service. For me, coaching is service with a teaching aspect, being a TA is teaching with a service aspect, that's how i distinguished them

Calling it Volunteer/Community Service-Not Medical/Clinical works just fine. Balancing your application among the variety of available tags is desirable.
