Our Volunteer Coaches are making a difference! 

Behind every YMCA sports team are dedicated coaches. Inspirational and influential, these selfless volunteers give their all for every practice, play and game. Being a coach at the YMCA also gives adults the opportunity to work with and learn from their players. You do not need a long list of coaching experience - just basic knowledge of the sport and a desire to teach the fundamentals. Coaches, you make our programs possible by volunteering your time to teach the youth in our community and you cannot be thanked enough!

Becoming a volunteer coach is easy! All volunteers must complete a Volunteer Application Packet and an online Coaches Training to volunteer with the Y. Upon completion, please provide the Athletic Department with your application, where they will then enter it for a criminal background check. For additional questions or to find the YMCA closest to you, please contact Abby Neff at 720 524 2754.

We recommend that you check out the YMCA training website where there are multiple sports-specific trainings available.  Each sport specific training will provide you with downloadable practice plans for specific ages in each sport.
