Frequently Asked Questions
Q: I'm interested in being a coach. What do I need to do?
A: Fill out our volunteer interest form to get started.
Q: Will the YMCA provide coaches?
A: Prior to the season, we hold a meeting and clinic for all coaches. Coaches receive practice plans, rules of play, field/court expectations, etc.
Coaches also receive access to our league management platform, PlayerSpace. PlayerSpace provides you with your team rosters and includes tools (email/text) to communicate with your team.
Q: When will I hear from my coach?
A: You will hear from your coach after our coaches meeting, which is about one to two weeks prior to the start of the season. Your coach will receive the team roster at this time, and they are encouraged to contact you, either by phone or email, with details on the upcoming season as soon as possible.
Q: What should I do if I have not heard from my coach?
A: Contact the area coordinator at your location or the Association youth sports office. In many of these cases, we have found the contact information we have for you on file is incorrect so we will need to update your contact information.
Q: What if I have a specific request?
A: We try to accommodate requests, but we cannot guarantee requests will be honored. Refunds are not provided due to an unfulfilled request. For teammate or coach requests, you must indicate whom you are requesting on the registration questionnaire.
Q: What is PlayerSpace?
A: PlayerSpace is our league management system that assigns team schedules and rosters. Prior to each season, you will receive an email inviting you to create a username and password.
Once you log in, the YMCA and your coach will communicate with you through this system. You will also be able to view your team’s schedule for the upcoming season.
