AYBL is proud to offer a Youth Coaching Program, giving High School and current 8th grade students opportunities to join our coaching staff. We work to position each youth coach in a situation in which they can succeed, developing the skills and confidence to grow as a coach, a leader, and a volunteer in their community. AYBL provides training both in how to teach the skills of basketball, and in how to best communicate and connect with the players to motivate them to achieve their best.
8th graders: Will be Assistant Coaches to adult head coaches
High School Students: Can be Assistant Coaches, or can apply to be selected as a Head Coach. If applying to be a head coach, you must be 18 years old or have someone willing to be at all team events who is over the age of 18. High School athletes, members of organizations such as National Honors Society or Key Club are preferred.
