Volunteers Needed (all LTYA volunteers must submit to a background check)
As an all-volunteer organization, we would not be able to offer our programs without the support of our many dedicated volunteers. Demand for our programs continues to grow and this has resulted in a shortage of coaches. Quite simply, if we do not have enough coach volunteers, we will not be able to form enough teams to include all the kids who want to play. Please volunteer today!
All of the planning and organizing outside of the individual teams is thanks to a relatively small group of volunteers that occupy the LTYA Board of Directors and the various Sports Board of Directors. We are always looking for individuals willing to lend a hand behind the scenes.
All teams need someone willing to take responsibility for running the team. This includes distribution of information, organizing team events and dispatching team duties. While this role has historically been filled by the head coach, it may be ideal for this role to be filled by someone whose time is best spent with the players. Additionally, the best coaches aren't always the best communicators and delegators.
This is the leader of the coaching staff of the team. This person is ultimately responsible for coaching of the team.
