Welcome to the Coaches Corner for YGametime. Thank you for giving your time and effort to help build local athletes, it’s no easy job – but it always comes with great reward. Whether coaching kids or adults, you are an instructor and a leader. ¬†Check back often as we update this page to provide resources to help you be the best coach.

Dear Volunteers,

Thank you so much for being a volunteer coach for one of our Beatrice YMCA Youth Sports. The Beatrice YMCA sets the philosophy and standards for Youth Sports programming to ensure a consistent and quality experience for all participants, parents, and volunteers. The YMCA Youth Sports department exists to INFORM, INSPIRE, INVOLVE, IMPACT and INVEST in order to foster a Circle of Influence and Change Lives through sports.

Inform = Communicate with parents and volunteers

Inspire = Create excitement for ALL

Involve = Connect people as volunteers

Impact = Change lives through sports

Invest = Commit to excellence

We also strive to keep our kids safe. We engage with PRAESIDIUM, external experts in abuse prevention, to provide access for all our staff and volunteers to learn comprehensive self-assessment as well as best practices in screening, training, supervision and reporting practices.

Thank you so much for being a volunteer! Your time is very important to the youth in our community and we appreciate you! Please feel free to reach out with any questions or concerns regarding our Volunteer Policies. Any questions regarding Youth Sports should be directed to Amanda Knoll at [email protected]
