UPDATE: As of Nov. 12th CYA was still looking for coaches for some of our high school leagues (boys and girls). Note that you must be at least a HS senior to coach at this level as you need to be at least 3 years older than the players on the team. If you are interested in coaching in one of our high school leagues, contact the appropropriate league administrator (see the contacts page).
CYA Basketball uses volunteer coaches aged 16 and up for both its house and travel programs. By rule, all CYA house coaches must be at least 16 years old and all travel coaches must be at least 25. For those younger than 25, volunteers are only eligible to coach teams at grades in which the both head and assistant coaches are at least 3 years older than the oldest player on the team. In addition, coaches younger than 25 years of age must have an adult at least 25 years old on the sideline during games and present at all practices.
You can volunteer to coach for the Winter program when Winter registratuion starts in mid-September and for the Spring program when Spring registration begins in mid-January. Final selection of the coaches is at the discretion of the league administrators and Basketball board. Please note that all head and assistant coaches are subject to a criminal background check through the KidSafe program. Those who do not register in the CYA database or do meet the standards set by CYA will not be allowed to coach.
