Together We Can Do More:
We're seeking volunteers interested in coaching youth sports. Our coaches make YMCA youth sports possible, and create a lifelong impact on children by encouraging participation and emphasizing sportsmanship and strong character. When you become a volunteer, the Y will introduce you to coaching and provide resources specific to the sport you coach. For more information, contact your nearest Y by phone or stop by the Welcome Center.
About YMCA Youth Sports
YMCA Youth Sports programs promote healthy kids, families and communities by placing a priority on family involvement, healthy competition, the value of participation over winning and team building. Parents are encouraged to be more than mere spectators by contributing their time as volunteer coaches and team parents as well as being their kid’s number one fan.
In order for your child to be registered for Youth Sports, please complete and sign this liability waiver and concussion waiver. Each YMCA provides offerings based on the needs of their members. Youth sports teams have one weeknight practice and one weekend game each week.
