TEAM ROSTERS
Team rosters and coach assignments will be finalized Wednesday, September 7. We will register approximately 10 players per team based on age and experience. Players who register before August 26 may request up to three teammates during registration. We will accommodate teammate and coach requests as much as possible on a first come, first-served basis.

UNIFORM
We recommend that all participants wear athletic shorts or sweatpants (no jeans), shin guards and rubber cleats or tennis shoes. At their first practice, all players will receive a t-shirt which they are responsible for maintaining and wearing to each game.

Registration, Fees & Refunds
 YMCA members: $50, Community Members: $90
Places are limited so sign up early! Refunds will only be issued if a player cancels before the last day of registration. Through the generous contributions of our donors, the Ann Arbor YMCA is able to provide financial scholarships that enable all members of the community to enjoy YMCA programs, regardless of income. Applications for financial assistance are available on our website or at our membership desk. The deadline for scholarship applications is Friday, September 2, 2016.

 

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
