VOLUNTEER OF THE MONTH - ALEX LOFTUS

Alex volunteers as a youth sports coach at the Y.  He was born in Illinois but has lived in Norman from 15 years.  Alex is married, has two children and currently works at the University of Oklahoma. Alex began coaching at the Y to be more involved with his kids. He has coached fall soccer, basketball, spring soccer and is currently coaching tee ball. Alex doesn't like to worry about wins and losses, but rather focuses on helping the kids understand the sport and gain the skills necessary to play the game. "I enjoy teaching the kids and watching them grow and develop and improve. I like the inclusiveness of the Y and the overall skill development based program versus a more competitive win/loss sports program."  We are grateful to have Alex as a Y member and volunteer and we are excited that Alex plans to continue volunteer coaching at the Y for the next several years.
