YOUTH BASKETBALL AT THE Y

The YMCA instructional league programs are designed to teach the rules, tactics, and skills and most importantly, HAVE FUN!

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 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.  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 here! For more information, contact Chris Deary at 734.661.8016 or cdeary@annarborymca.org
