What can your coaches expect?
What is the Cost?
As of July 1, 2013 the cost to attend in person will be $20/person. Only cash or checks made out to Coaching Coaches LLC will be accepted. Non-CYC coaches may attend at a cost of $40.00. The online cost is $19.95 and can be paid with credit card or via PayPal. (Revised, 6/26/13)
Who Must Attend?
Beginning with the 2014 CYC Basketball season, the program is mandatory for ALL CYC (K-8) coaches/managers, both head and assistant coaches. This is a one-time training session. Each following year only new coaches/managers will need to attend.
Do the Coaches need a Card?
Yes, coaches are required to hold a valid CYC ID Card. Coaches who have completed CYC Coaches Training will have an assigned Coaching ID number added to their card.
All coaches need to apply for their Coach's ID Card in one of two methods:
1) Online: (http://idcards.cycstl.net/) and follow the directions - those applying for a Coach's ID Card will be asked to enter their Coaching ID Number. If you do not know your Coaching ID number, click on the button that says Request ID Number. Your Coaching ID number will be returned to you via e-mail within 48 hours.
2) Attend, in person, an ID Card Session - See the CYC website: (www.cycstl.net) for ID Card Session dates - those applying for a Coach's ID Card will be asked if they know their Coaching ID number. If you do not know it, or do not have one, the number can be looked up, or assigned if necessary. You will receive your coach's ID card at the session.
After the CYC Office verifies attendance at the CYC Coaches’ Training Program session and the Archdiocesan Safe Environment Program verifies that you are in compliance with the Archdiocesan requirements, your card will be processed and issued. Your coach’s ID number will be on the card.
Please allow at least 10 days for the online process.
What should I do if my Card is lost or stolen?
A replacement card can be issued for $5.00 by applying for an online ID Card from the CYC.
