NOTE: Coaches approved on YMCA teams are automatically notified via email when their certifications will expire in 60 days, 30 days, and the day they expire. This gives time to renew the certifications. Admins will be notified when the certifications expire.

  1. In the left navigation menu, click YMCA Admin > Coaches.

  2. Locate your name and click on it.

    • If you do not see your name, search for it in the Search for Coaches field.
