Members give high marks to NYSCA program
"I believe all coaches should definitely attend this clinic!"
Coach Luis Martinez- Davie, FL
"The training video covers so many topics and raises the coaches' awareness of issues and responsibilities. The coaches understand that being a youth sport coach is not just teaching the kids how to play a sport, it is much more intense."
Michelle Mitchell- Chapter Director Chelsea Recreation Chelsea, MI
"NYSCA is a program that equips volunteers and entire communities to educate youth in a fun athletic environment. Unlike other national organizations, this particular program provides coaches with the tools to assist in the beginning of sport development and the avenues to develop and hone their knowledge to a greater extent."
Kathi Malloy, Sugar Grove Park District, IL
"I feel this clinic should be a mandatory requirement for all coaches."
Coach Douglas Hosier- Ashville, NY
"I see the NYSCA program as a way to demonstrate to players, coaches and families that our leagues intent is providing the highest level of positive experience for our children. NYSCA certification offers us a way to orient and train our coaches in techniques that will help them to do their best as well as offer a practical way to help them be a good role model while providing a safe environment for all participating."
Susan Gordon, Central Texas Youth Football League, TX
"ALL coaches are required by our organization to be certified by NYSCA. No other people are permitted to be on our sidelines without it."

Coach Brett Schirrman - Port St Lucie, FL
"Very outstanding clinic. Very helpful and will assist my needs."
Coach Jason - Fort Campbell, KY
"One of the most rewarding things I have received from coaching so far is the relationships I have developed with the kids and parents in the community. Whether I am at a school event or a local restaurant, kids and their parents that I have coached in the past will come up to me and ask how I am doing and if I am coaching again this year. It gives me great pride to tell them that this year I will be certified by NYSCA. I can see by their expressions that they now have an even greater trust and confidence in my ability to coach their kid."
Coach Rory Kaiser- Chelsea, MI
"New ideas, drills & the quality was great!"
Coach Marcella - Columbus, OH
"Glad to see that with this Coaching Membership there is coverage in all aspects we need."
Coach Tim Phelps - Lees Summit, MO
"Our last season was the worst season we have ever experienced. We had to cancel playoffs because we would have needed our local police to keep the peace. The children did not come back because their playing experience was not a fun one. This season I made it mandatory that all coaches must be trained and certified with NYSCA. Regardless of any of the negatives from the past season, having you guys on board with us is a positive that will correct all of that. This season we have basically started our program over but through the support and continued education of NAYS, it will be good."
Ray Freeman- Chapter Director Hampton County Recreation Hampton, SC
"Very helpful on the knowledge & fundamentals of coaching."
Coach Boyce Horn - Lake Alfred, FL
