Interested in becoming a Coach?

As a volunteer at the YMCA, you help shape and support your community and we thank you for your commitment. We value your involvement in the Youth Sports Program and your impact in influencing positive growth and development for young people.

Coach's Meetings

Before the start of every season, we hold a coach's meeting to go over the necessary information needed to coach a YMCA youth sports team. Things covered at the coach's meeting include: pictures, practice information, teams/rosters, coach's expectations and roles, game day information, equipment needed, as well as a host of others. Coach's meetings are important to attend and it plays a vital role in being a YMCA coach.

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.
