Coaches

 

 

Coaches, Parents and Volunteers,  to better prepare our coaches and help insure the protection of your children while participating in the sports hosted by the Williamsburg Junior Athletic Association, WJAA is now NAYS affiliated. This initiative will provide efficient training and background screening to our coaches and volunteers.

 

Volunteers 

Anyone interacting with the children participating on a WJAA team, other than their own child, will need to pass a background screening prior to volunteering. This includes, but is not limited to, team moms and anyone helping on the fields/court during practice. If you will be interacting with the children in any form from the team standpoint, we REQUIRE that you receive your background screening to insure the safety of the children. If you have a question as to whether or not you should get your background screening, please send  an email for further clarification to WJAA VP.   We have negotiated a reduced rate for the background screening to only $12.00 per volunteer.  You must have this before any interaction with children at WJAA. A list of those with background checks will be posted on the website and can be checked at anytime. For anyone wondering about why we need background checks. Google "youth coach charged". Is it worth $12 to make sure this doesn't happen to our kids?

Coaches

If you are a coach, (head coach or an assistant who may be left in charge of a game) in addition to your background screening, you will also need to join and complete the NYSCA (National Youth Sports Coaches Association) volunteer training program. The NYSCA volunteer coach training program is designed to sensitize volunteer coaches to their responsibilities and hold them accountable to a strict Code of Conduct defined by the NYSCA Coaches'. In addition to the basic coaches training, NYSCA offers sport specific training,  concussion training REQUIRED by the STATE OF OHIO and bullying trainingl. Also with your second year of membership you will be covered with one million dollars of liability insurance as well as other benefits.   The current cost to become a NYSCA member is $20.00 annually. This certification is good for all sports during a year. This must be done before you interact with any children at WJAA.

Once you are a member of NYSCA please look at the training videos for your sport. Inside you will find excellent drills, proper technique and the tools to build the fundamentals of your WJAA team.
