VOLUNTEER COACHING

volunteer coachTogether, We’re Making a Difference

Being a volunteer coach for the YMCA is not just an opportunity to put your athletic experience to work. Coaching at the Y allows you to make a difference in your community and in the lives of local children. Become a mentor by teaching kids the Y way to play!

The Y Way to Play is a commitment for all to learn, grow and have fun through sports. Our goal is to build a community through Y sports programs, in which everyone has the opportunity for youth development, healthy living and social responsibility. Sports are a vehicle to so many opportunities—whether it is sportsmanship and values, coaching and sharing, or socializing and learning teamwork.

The Y Way to Play: Fun. Sportsmanship. Opportunity. Progressive Competition. Community.

Sports include: Baseball, basketball, flag football, hockey, lacrosse, ice skating, soccer, ultimate frisbee and volleyball.
