REQUIREMENTS TO BE A COACH

All Coaches and Managers of Kindergarten through 8th Grade teams must attend the CYC Sports Coaches Training Program, a 2 and 1/2 hour program that helps coaches make a positive difference in their team member's lives.

The CYC also requires that all coaches attend a Protecting God's Children Workshop, through the Archdiocese of Saint Louis' Safe Environment Program, and have a Missouri Background Check ever two years, read, sign and return to your parish the Ethical Code of Conduct.

After completing the training and attending the program, coaches need to apply for a CYC Coaches ID card.
