General Information

Coaches Training and Orientation

As a result of feedback regarding challenges with first year CYO coaches either making the transition to CYO or coaching for the first time, and with some coaches being selected too late to enable them to attend a Coaches Orientation prior to coaching CYO, the CYO Coaches Training has just been updated to include a new online option. The new requirements are as follows:

Before coaching any CYO team, all coaches (head & assistants) must either:

  • Attend the in-person Coaches Orientation seminar (see schedule above)
  • or

  • Take the new Online Catholic Coaching Essentials before coaching at all AND attend the Coaches Orientation during the first year of coaching CYO sports (e.g. Coach Volleyball - Online course before you start coaching at all; attend Coaches Orientation by the April date; or Coach Basketball - Online course immediately followed by Coaches Orientation by the October, 2009 session)

The online Catholic Coaching Essentials course is designed to familiarize coaches with both the basic approach to being an effective youth sports coach and the Catholic framework from which we carry out this ministry. Should a coach not be able to attend the Coaches Orientation prior to their first CYO coaching opportunity, this online course is required up front. This new requirement is on a “best efforts” basis for Fall Sports and is mandatory beginning with the Winter, 2008 — 2009 CYO season.

Your participation in and completion of the course will be tracked through Wagdogs and associated with your coaching information for future reference.

Follow the link to the Catholic Coaching Essentials training course.
