Returning Sports To Kids

The Jerry Long Family YMCA aspires to be an outstanding youth sports organization that returns sports to kids.

flag football girlWe do this in two ways:

1) Creating Outstanding Player Experiences

  • Athletes have fun at practices and games.
  • Athletes develop strong character and learn life lessons that have value beyond the playing field.
  • Athletes feel like an important part of the team regardless of performance.
  • Athletes develop a lifestyle of healthy living.
  • Athletes learn the skills, tactics, and strategies of the game and improve as a player.

2) Changing the Culture of Youth Sports

  • Redefining what it means to be a winner
  • Providing coaches the tools they need to be successful coaches and leaders
  • Raising awareness for, and guarding against, dysfunctional behavior

Be a Coach!

As is the case with all recreational leagues, the Y program is built on dedicated volunteer coaches. If you are a great role model, have a fun-loving attitude, enjoy working with kids, and have good communication skills, you are qualified to become a head coach! The Y provides coach training and practice plans, along with help from staff members when needed. Coaching couldn’t get any easier! If you are interested, contact the Y staff listed above and tell them you want to make an impact this season!
