NOMINATE A YMCA COACH OF THE YEAR
NOMINATIONS ARE NOW CLOSED....
YMCA coaches play a critical role in the cognitive, physical and social-emotional development of young athletes. The lessons learned through swimming help an individual to thrive well beyond the pool.
The YMCA Swimming Coach of the Year Award is presented annually to the person who best exemplifies this approach in his or her role as a coach. The recipient intentionally strengthens the foundations of his or her community and actively promotes achievement, positive relationships and a sense of belonging. He or she maintains high standards for the YMCA's core values of honesty, caring, respect and responsibility.
Anyone can nominate a swim coach for his award: parent, swimmer, coach, YMCA professional, official. Forms and all supporting documents are due by March 1, 2020. The recipient is selected by YMCA National Coaches Association Executive Committee and the YMCA of USA Swimming and Diving Council. The recipient will be announced at the YMCA National Short Course Championship Meet. The recipient does not need to be present at the meet to be chosen to receive the award.
Please do not send multiple submissions by different individuals for the same coach if these individuals are all aware that the coach is being nominated. Please consolidate all the information into one submission, if possible. ....More
