Welcome Catholic Youth Ministry coaches!

The basic Catholic Coaching Essentials online training satisfies the coaching education recertification requirements set forth by the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington. As the exclusive coaching education provider to NCYOS (National Catholic Youth Organization Sports), ASEP has designed customized online coaching courses incorporating faith-based content. The courses carry the endorsement of NCYOS. While coaches in the Catholic Diocese of Wilmington are required to complete Coaches Training Part II and offer basic Catholic Coaching Essentials  online course for recertification, it is highly recommended that coaches also take the sport-specific course for the sport they are coaching. Coaches taking basic Catholic Coaching Essentials and the sport-specific course will be nationally certified and recognized by NCYOS. NOTE: It is important to understand that coaches must have completed CYM Coaches Training Part I no earlier than two (2) years prior to taking this online course and are responsible for the cost of this online training. Some parishes/schools may reimburse coaches for this training however CYM will NOT make any reimbursements. It is the responsibility of the coach to follow up with their parish/school to determine the reimbursement policy of the said parish/school.
