Coaching

YMCA youth sports is a volunteer-based program. Coaches are necessary to the success of our leagues. Please consider coaching this season! Circle Coach or Asst. Coach in the Willingness to Volunteer Section. All coaches must fill out a volunteer form and turn in before coaches meeting.

Requests

We will do our best to accommodate any requests regarding practice night, but we cannot guarantee that a request for teammate, coach, jersey number, etc. can be honored. In order to maintain a fair and fun experience for all kids involved, the YMCA will do everything we can to ensure even teams heading into the season, therefore NO refunds will be given for participants who withdraw due to unmet requests.
