VOLLEYBALL

YMCA DEVELOPMENTAL LEAGUE

YMCA Sports Leagues are developmental with an emphasis on good sportsmanship and an understanding of the game. The philosophy of YMCA youth sports programs is to use sports as a tool to develop each participant physically, mentally and spiritually. Children will have the opportunity to learn the basic volleyball fundamentals such as underhand serving, setting, hitting, and digging in a non-competitive environment.

VOLUNTEER COACHING

Because we focus on development, we rely on parents to volunteer to Coach. Each team needs a volunteer parent or guardian to step up and coach the players. If you enjoy being a leader and teaching children the fundamentals of good sportsmanship, then you would make a perfect Volunteer Coach!

GETTING STARTED

If you are interested in becoming a Volunteer Coach for a youth sports team, you will need to fill out our volunteer paperwork and background check form. You can download a fillable PDF version of the paperwork below. When you are finished, email it to our Director of Athletics, Shane Richardson at srichardson@ymcaokc.org.

FINANCIAL ASSISTANCE

 

It is the policy of the YMCA that no person be denied membership or program participation due to the inability to pay. Funds for financial assistance are provided through the YMCA’s Annual Support Campaign and the Scholarship Program.
