Supporting our youth through the love of sports!

Head/Assistant Coaches

All persons who wish to become a volunteer coach (head coaches and assistants) for BLYA must first contact BLYA through online registration, or on physical registration days. Prior to approval, the volunteer coach must complete a background check. Coaches shall not be under the influence of alcohol or other drugs, shall not use tobacco in any fashion, and shall refrain from profanity while coaching athletes. All coaching terms are determined on a year-to-year basis. However, once approved, coaches from the previous year may be offered coaching positions for the following year.

Coaches are expected to:
Promote positive relationships with all athletes (both Bismarck Lions and opponents)
Effectively communicate all team information
 Demonstrate a strong commitment to the team, making practice a priority for themselves, and utilizing resources for the best interest of the team
Be an exemplary model of sportsmanship
Teach skills, knowledge, and appropriate attitudes
Place the health and welfare of the athletes as their primary concern
Promote a drug/alcohol/tobacco-free lifestyle
Encourage and respect all athletes (build up our athletes do not tear them down)
Operate within the rules and guidelines of the Arkansas Activities Association and the policies/rules of BLYA
