LEAD THE TEAM: BECOME A Y VOLUNTEER COACH!

Y youth sports teams are coached by one or two trained YMCA volunteer coaches, many of whom are parents or community members. If you like to work with children and enjoy helping them learn and succeed, we need you! If you are interested in coaching, you need to be at least 14 years of age and to attend a Y coach’s workshop prior to the start of the season. Our workshops introduce volunteers to the YMCA’s character values and youth development philosophy as well as give you the practical skills necessary to teach and lead youth sports teams. No formal coaching experience is necessary; all we ask is that you are committed to helping young people build positive self-images and develop a passion for an active lifestyle.

Interested in volunteering your time as a coach? Fill out an online application today! For more information, contact Chris Deary at (734) 661-8016 or cdeary@annarborymca.org
