BE GOAL ORIENTED!
At the YMCA, kids develop all of their skills, from catching and dribbling to teamwork and sportsmanship. Just as important, they learn firsthand the benefits of being healthy & active and that virtual games just can't compare to the real thing. Youth Sports are offered year-round and always need great coaches. Use your talents to encourage, guide and train young athletes at the Y! We offer youth sports programs for flag football, volleyball, baseball, soccer, tennis, swimming, hockey, gymnastics and speed and agility.

SESSION PLAN – The most important thing in coaching is the relationship between the athlete and the coach. There needs to be trust, respect and integrity. These elements provide the framework for a healthy and productive experience for both the coachand the athlete. I develop training around building core strength using body weight (especially for young athletes). I also teach proper stretching of the hips, gluts, hamstrings and quads. Once the athlete’s body is ready to handle the stress of a sprintworkout, we move into sprinting. – Coach David LaDay
LOCATION – Training will take place at the Fremont Family YMCA
COST - $65 for all 13 classes.
REGISTRATION DEADLINE – Tuesday, November 5, 2019
