CYA invites interested parties to volunteer to coach in the Prep Program, which consists of 6-8 teams of 4-5th graders selected through a tryout process (both a Boys and Girls program). Coaches will be selected by the Prep Coordinator, with the advice and consent of the Basketball Board, following the completion of the Travel tryouts. The Prep coaches will then help select those 4th-5th graders invited to participate in the Prep program through a tryout process.
The same restrictions apply for Prep coaches as apply for House coaches. However, given that the Prep coaches are preparing their players to tryout for Travel the following year, even greater emphasis is placed on experience and player development skills.
You can volunteer as a Prep coach in the same fashion as volunteering as a House coach. However, it is also advisable to send an email noting your interest in coaching prep to the Prep Coordinator, Lynne Nolan, at firstname.lastname@example.org
