We believe that if we foster a love for the sport, teach the fundamental skills to be successful, promote a healthy mind, body and spirit we can develop a complete athlete. Our program combines highly skilled staff coaches with volunteer coaches to ensure proper fundamental skill development. The program includes weekly skills/conditioning led by staff skills coaches, weekly practices led by volunteer coaches and individual/team instruction as needed. Each sport follows a progressive age related curriculum designed by the coaching staff.
Staff skills coaches have either collegiate playing or coaching experience- some have played professionally. Coaches design and follow a progressive age specific curriculum to ensure athletes and volunteer coaches learn the fundamental skills of their sport. The also serve as mentors for athletes who aspire to collegiate or professional play, they've been there- done that. Staff coaches will work together with volunteer coaches to demonstrate proper instruction and a progressive approach through weekly skills and conditioning sessions. Private instruction is also available for players and teams to correct or develop specific skills.
Volunteer coaches, coordinators and referees are essential to the success of YMCA sports programs. Volunteer coaches assist staff coaches in the weekly skills and conditioning sessions, lead the weekly team practice and weekly games. With the staff coaches guiding the program, volunteer coaches can feel supported and be a part of program with strong fundamental skill development.
Led by the staff skills coach with collegiate playing and/or coaching experience to teach the fundamental skills/conditioning in a progressive manner. Volunteer coaches can assist giving them the opportunity to learn the technical aspects of the sport alongside their players.
