Coaches are expected to create practice plans, set rosters for each game, help players improve their skills, and establish a culture of respect and positive sportsmanship on their teams. Head coaches will work with their assistant coaches and team manager to ensure communication with parents is clear regarding practice and game times and are expected to represent RAYB values.
In order to be on the field or in the dugout, all coaches must have completed a background check and concussion training; for travel teams, they must also be officially rostered with MYAS. (We recognize that some rec teams may have one-off instances where backup assistance is needed due to a regular coach absence, but these should only be occasional exceptions, and coaches are responsible for oversight of any of these volunteers.)
A coaching or team manager position requires you to provide care, treatment, education, training, instruction, supervision or recreation to children. This position requires a background check per the Bureau of Criminal Apprehension (BCA) records pursuant to Minnesota Statutes Chapter 299C.62.
RAYB works with the Trusted Coaches organization to have a national background check performed.
All coaches and team managers are also required to go through concussion training. This training is also facilitated through Trusted Coaches.
Please complete and submit the RAYB Coach / Manager application. Once completed and assigned to a team, you will receive a link & program code to use on the Trusted Coaches site.
