Volunteer coaches sought for preschool basketball program

The YMCA and JCC of Greater Toledo is seeking volunteer coaches for the preschool basketball program at the Fort Meigs location in Perrysburg.

Interested volunteers are invited to a coaches' meeting at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Fort Meigs YMCA, 13415 Eckel Junction Rd.

YMCA Youth Basketball is a co-ed program for children ages 3-5 and not enrolled in kindergarten. The program places a strong emphasis on fun, fair play, equal playing time, and learning the fundamentals of basketball, according to the organization's Web site.

Volunteer coaches would lead teams in weekly 30-minute evening practices and seven, 30-minute games on Saturday mornings, all held at Fort Meigs YMCA.

Score is not kept. All participants play and learn each position, and games are played with a lowered backboard and rim. Players receive participation awards.

Call the Fort Meigs YMCA at 419-251-9622 or click here for more information.
