Coach Training Resources
Thank you for volunteering as a Y coach or youth sports official. As a volunteer at your YMCA, you have an opportunity to positively influence the development of youth and shape and support your community.
We want to help you have the best season ever, and so we have created the online courses listed in the table below to get you started. These eLearnings describe the Y's philosophy on youth sports; offer basic coaching techniques, including practice plans, skills, drills, rules, and tactics; and outline valuable volunteer resources.
Tips & Tricks
- Our eLearnings allow you to move at your own pace, so your time for completion may differ from the estimate provided. That's OK!
- If you have any difficulty accessing an eLearning, please call the YMCA of the USA Contact Center at 800-872-9622.
