Mission

Our goal is to provide a high quality recreational sports experience for all participants. We offer a variety of sports and fitness activities for children ages 4-14, designed to promote physical fitness and help participants learn sportsmanship, teamwork and fair play.

We believe that a certain level of competitiveness is important in sports and fitness, along with the belief that all sports are designed to be fun, and that everyone deserves equal playing time.

Volunteers & Coaches

CYS  Volunteers

Parent volunteers are a very important resource for CYS. Registered children/youth benefit immensely from the knowledge and skill that volunteers provide to our programs. We're looking for enthusiastic people who want to help out — sharing their talents assisting and leading various activities such as reading to children, participating in field trips, making games, repairing toys, sewing with kids, etc.

Start by becoming a registered volunteer through Army Community Service's (ACS) Go-Volunteer to find out where your talents can be best used within CYS. By keeping track of your volunteer hours, you can qualify for Parent Participation Points.

Volunteer Coaching

Did you play sports in high school or college? Have you always wanted to coach football, soccer or basketball? Are you a cheerleader at heart? Even if you have never played or coached a sport before, you can still become a certified volunteer coach! CYS Volunteer Coaches encourage all children to explore the world of sports, learn the fundamentals of good sportsmanship and have fun at the same time. 

Contact CYS Sports and Fitness to begin. 

Coaches Discount:

Head coaches and assistant coaches can receive discounts. Parent Central Services will calculate discounts offered to each coach.

Coaching Requirements:

  • Required CPR/First Aid and instructional training is provided by CYS prior to the beginning of the season
  • Background checks must be cleared on all coaches prior to team assignment

Youth Sports and Fitness

Sports and Fitness Programs provide team sports, individual sports, fitness and health programs and, programming at Child Development Centers, School Age and Youth Programs. Pre-registration is required for Sports and Fitness Programs. Children and youth that are currently registered in CYS can be enrolled in Sports and Fitness using WebTrac.

The National Alliance for Youth Sports (NAYS) has a website for evaluation of coaches. Parents have the opportunity to evaluate coaches on the NAYS website. Parents must have the coach member number to rate their coach. You can get this number from the CYS Sports and Fitness office. 

Sports Physical

A sports-specific physical must be completed annually, prior to the start of the sports season. The form must be completed with a doctor’s signature and stamp, then submitted to Parent Central Services during registration. Hint: The best time to get your child’s physical — if possible — is in July. This way, your child’s physical will be valid for all sports for one full year.
