Youth sports coaches, many of which are volunteers, are the foundation of youth sports in the U.S. Those who are trained and educated on the many different aspects involved with coaching kids are best prepared to provide participants with a fun-filled, safe and rewarding experience.
The National Youth Sports Coaches Association (NYSCA) is the most widely used coach training program in the nation, having trained more than 3 million coaches since its inception in 1981. The NYSCA training is available online for coaches to complete at their convenience; and it's also offered on site in more than 3,000 communities nationwide
"NYSCA provides our organization with additional credibility and makes coaches' training simple and to the point. Our coaches know it is a standard they must live up to and that certification is not an option but a must. I once had a coach who gave me a hard time about having to 'watch that video'. Later he became president of a local baseball organization and called to find out if I would come and do training for all of the coaches in his organization. I was happy to take 'that video' on the road and train his coaches. It is great to have so many options for training and certification all in one place!" - Miste A.
"The NYSCA training covers so many topics and raises the coaches' awareness of issues and responsibilities. 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, M.
