The NAYS organization is a volunteer coach training program that is designed to sensitize volunteer coaches to their responsibilities and hold them accountable to a strict code of ethics and conduct. All coaches have background clearance checks and are screened through the Army Central Registry, MPs, CID and Alcohol and Drug Prevention programs for any reported misconduct involving children.
Training includes psychological and emotional needs of youth, safety and first aid, conditioning and nutrition, teaching proper sports techniques and drug awareness. Volunteer coaches are always welcome for all sports programs.
