Volunteer Coaching

Want to be a Volunteer Coach?

Did you play sports in high school or college?  Do you have a desire to encourage children to explore the world of sports, learn the fundamentals of good sportsmanship, and have fun at the same time?

Parent volunteers are a very important resource for youth sports programs.  Even if you have never played or coached a sport before, you can still become a certified volunteer coach with CYS Youth Sports!  All coaches receive FREE Coaches Training online through the National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS).  Stop by the McConnell Youth Center, or contact the Youth Sports & Fitness office to start the process today!
