Coaches Corner

Youth coaches are vital to the success of youth programs and in the development of our players in the game of basketball and more importantly in the game of life. LMYB coaches teach sportsmanship, teamwork, respect and to always have a positive attitude. Coaches are to use practices to develop individual skills while teaching team concepts. Winning is not always the main objective, but making all-star memories should be. Players will probably not remember the win and losses, but will remember if they enjoyed themselves.

Both parents and non-parents are encouraged to apply for coaching positions. Thank you to all the coaches who volunteer their time to the LMYB basketball program!
