Coaching Positions

Application and Selection Process

CYA Basketball invites interested parties to apply for coaching positions in the Winter 2005-06 House recreational program. Coaches are needed at all grade levels, from 1st through 12th grade. By CYA rule, all coaches must be at least 16 years old. For those younger than 25, volunteers are only eligible to coach teams at grades in which the head and assistant coach is 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.
To volunteer as a coach, you must register online begining in September in order to be processed through CYA's KidSafe program. If you have not yet signed up, click on the Volunteer only link on the left side of the main CYA web page ( or Volunteer to coach link on the left side of this page. Make sure that you click the drop list in order to view all the programs. Note that you will be required to furnish your Social Security number when you sign up to coach in order to be processed through KidSafe.
Coaches will be selected by the league administrators for each age group, subject to the advice and consent of the Basketball board.  Individuals will be contacted about coaching positions in early November.
Please note that all head and assistant coaches will be 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.
