The Scantic Valley YMCA will also host a coaching clinic on March 5 from 10:30 a.m. to 1:30 p.m. located at their facility at 45 Post Office Park in Wilbraham. The coaching clinic will be taught by several experienced coaches from Springfield College and is open to both members and non-members of the YMCA that are at least 18 years of age.

The clinic will not be sport specific and will offer a wide range of coaching skills. This clinic will benefit parents that want to learn to better coach their own children, the aspiring coach and even the experienced coach.

Participants will learn psychological, philosophical and organizational skills for coaching. Participants will leave with helpful handouts and the knowledge to get them started with their coaching career. If you have any questions please call 596-2749 ext. 109 and ask for Matt.
