Youth sports coaches, many of which are volunteers, are the foundation of youth sports in the U.S. Those who are trained and educated on the many different aspects involved with coaching kids are best prepared to provide participants with a fun-filled, safe and rewarding experience.
NAYS Coach Training & Membership Program, formerly the National Youth Sports Coaches Association or NYSCA, is the most widely used coach training program in the nation, having trained more than 3 million coaches since its inception in 1981. NAYS Coach Training is available online for coaches to complete at their convenience; and it’s also offered on-site in more than 3,000 communities nationwide.
The training and membership fee is $20.
The top quality NAYS Coach Training features two components: Coaching Youth Sports and a sport-specific training. The Coaching Youth Sports portion covers topics coaches of all sports need to know, such as working with parents; motivating kids; building confidence; instilling good sportsmanship; safety; and nutrition and hydration; among many other areas.
In the sport-specific training coaches learn how to teach the basic skills and fundamentals of the particular sport they are coaching, as well as effective drills to use during their practices.
After completing the NAYS Coach Training, coaches qualify for an annual membership, which includes a $1,000,000 excess liability insurance policy; access to member-only coaching resources and supplemental coach trainings; SportingKid Live!; a member e-newsletter; a member ID card; and corporate discounts on everyday services like car rentals, hotels and more.

There are no costs for becoming a NAYS Member Organization or for the training videos and materials. The only fees remitted to NAYS are the membership fees for each clinic participant.
