Sports are fun and provide opportunities for kids to stay active when the world wants them to stay glued to their screens. For the Y, sports mean even more.
The Bucyrus-Tiffin YMCA Youth Sports program emphasizes the Y’s core values of caring, honesty, respect, and responsibility while focusing on three key elements:
By stressing teamwork and the Y’s core values, our sports leagues help teach youth how to be both good sports and good citizens. At the Y, what happens off the field is just as important as what happens on the field.
Our emphasis on teaching and personal improvement fosters an ideal environment for Youth Sports participants to learn and develop their athletic skills.
We recruit parents, community members, and adult athletes who are committed to providing a positive experience for everyone. Each of our Youth Sports Coaches goes through a YMCA Coach's Orientation and commits to modeling the Y’s core values.
Caring adults are at the foundation of our Youth Sports program. They provide athletic instruction and goals, encouragement for children at all skill levels, and a safe environment in which every child feels like a valuable member of the team. We are grateful for our coaches! If you would like to apply to volunteer, please contact Nikki in Bucyrus at email@example.com or Jillian in Tiffin at firstname.lastname@example.org.
The Coaches Handbook provides an overview of YMCA sports, risk and injury prevention, character development, practice guidelines and tips, working with parents and officials, a coach’s troubleshooting guide, and more.
