Play Like a Champion Today (in-person course)
This in-person program will be presented by CYC staff, and is a comprehensive look at Coaching with integrity, setting goals for teams and athletes, looking at the Coach as a ministry opportunity, and developing your athletes physically and spiritually. If you would like to read more about the program you can visit their website here.
Play Like a Champion Today is new to CYC starting in Fall 2019. All HEAD Coaches will have 12 months to complete the program before it is enforced. Starting with Soccer and Volleyball in 2020, you will not be able to be listed on a roster as a Head Coach until you have taken the program.
It is recommended that Assistant Coaches who may want to be a Head Coach in the future should take Play Like a Champion. It is also recommended that Parish Athletic Association Leadership (AA Board, Lay directors, etc.) take Play Like a Champion to understand what their Coaches are learning, and find more ways to build on the training and sportsmanship at their parish.
