CCYB is always looking for coaches to help support the program. You don't need to have a child in the program to be a coach, but we are looking for people who have experience playing or coaching at the high school or college levels. We typically try to have a three-person coaching staff and balance the coaches between people with stronger basketball knowledge and people who may be able to make more of a commitment. Our intent is to allow people who may want to coach but have unpredictable work/travel schedules the ability to help out.
CCYB works closely with the CCHS high school varsity coaches to ensure our program is training our players with the skills and knowledge required to play high school basketball. We also adhere to the Positive Coaching Alliance principles of coaching youth sports.
The following are the requirements for coaching in the CCYB Travel program:
Be will to submit to a CORI check
Be available regularly for practices and games
Foster a positive playing environment
Have playing and/or coaching experience at the youth, high school, and/or college levels
