If we reach $500 before the end of December 2019, Kindest will MATCH our donations! Reaching our goal of $500 will allow FIYA to cover the cost of the NAYS coaching certification program for 25 coaches!
Your sustainable gift of $20/month covers the cost of coaching certification for 1 coach EVERY MONTH. By the end of the school year, you will impact at least 10 COACHES!

"Behind every successful team is a dedicated coach who refused to let them be anything but the best they can be."
They say that a coach will impact more young people in a year than the average person does in a lifetime. Yet, many of our youth are being stripped of the opportunity to play in sports because they do not have a coach to lead them. Participating schools in FIYA are required to hire and assign their own coaches, however many do not have the funds to pay for their efforts so most of our coaches are purely volunteers. Recognizing this, in the past year, FIYA has been working hard to provide coaches with as many tools as possible to be successful in working with their student athletes and to inspire more potential coaches to step up to the plate.
We offer free coaching clinics where we invite established, experienced coaches to speak to current FIYA participating coaches; we have provided various instructional resources through our social media platforms (check out our Pinterest) and we have instituted a formal coaching certification program through National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS). NAYS not only provides FIYA with an enhanced coaching certification process to ensure all coaches are dedicated and educated, but also reminds our coaches how to lead, achieve, and succeed in their endeavors with our young athletes. With this fundraising, we can cover the costs for coaches to get certified through NAYS which will also give them access all year long to their online database full of significant youth sports resources. It will also allow for FIYA to continue offering free clinics and additional resources of our own to support our coaches.
We anticipate a budget of $5,000 to cover the expenses in this area.
Coaches are crucial to the successes of our programs and the experiences that our students have participating in sports. Coaches are teachers and teachers are impacting the lives of our youth every day and beyond. Let's help inspire and educate more coaches so that they may continue positively leading our student-athletes both on and off the field/ court!
