Once a coach accepts the responsibility to coach in CYO Athletics, they accept the responsibility to maintain a standard for excellence. Every coach, head and assistant, must attend the Coaches Development Program before they begin coaching.
Rooted in our mission and values, it is our intention to offer an informational and educational leadership-training program for youth coaches. The program outline session includes Youth Ministry Through Athletics, CYO Governance, Risk Management, Helping Young Athletes Safely Excel in Sports and Coaching Pedagogy.
The program is offered throughout the year in both the Cleveland and Akron areas. View a list of program sessions below. Coaches can use the online registration button below and select the Coaches Development Program where you can pay with a Visa or Master Card or complete a paper form. Cost is $30.00.
Once a coach completes the program, they will be issued a coaching card and lanyard. Every coach on the coaching staff must wear their credentials to every contest.
