At the YMCA, all of our youth sports coaches are volunteers. If you would like to make a positive impact in a young persons life, please consider volunteering. Prior to coaching for the YMCA, you must fill out a volunteer application and agree to a background check. As as a coach, you would have the ability to choose the day, time and location of practices as well as make requests regarding game schedules. If you have any questions about volunteering please contact the YMCA Sports Complex. Click HERE to download the volunteer application now.
