Together we can make a difference

Do You:
  • Have​ a​ passion for supporting and developing youth?​
  • Love sports?  
  • ​Possess organizational skills, patience and dependability?​
  • ​Have a​ sound character, strong morals, values and personal ethics?

​If you answered YES to the questions above, then please consider becoming a coach at the Y! Join our next coaches meeting (schedule below) to learn more.

Our volunteer coaches are cause-driven role models with a passion and enthusiasm for ensuring that kids have a positive, encouraging and fun experience with sports and teamwork. YOU can make the difference!

Coaches can leave a lasting impression on children long after the season is over. Without volunteer coaches, we would not be able to offer our quality Youth Sports programs. The majority of our coaches are parents with a similar philosophy to the Y: sportsmanship and fun are primary goals; winning and losing are secondary. The responsibilities of a coach include promoting the Y philosophy to players, making sure all children get equal playing time and ensuring that you yourself, are a model of sportsmanship and fair play.

All coaches must attend a coaches meeting prior to each season.

Coaches resources

We believe that a youth sports program is only as strong as its coaches and that is why we want you to have all the tools you need for your season. Below you will find downloadable manuals, information on sports concussions, online training information, and where to subscribe for weekly coaches talking points. 

Concussion Information

Concussions can occur in any sport or recreation activity. So, all coaches, parents, and athletes need to learn concussion signs and symptoms and what to do if a concussion occurs. A free training course is available at the HEADS UP Concussion in Youth Sports website.
