Volunteer Information

McLean Youth Volleyball (MYV) is 100% volunteer. We recognize that volunteers may have limited time to contribute and we fully appreciate the commitment to making McLean Youth Volleyball a success for your child and all our youth athletes.  For the program to function, below are volunteer positions that need to be filled.

COACHING

  • Coach - Head coaches and Assistant Coache are always needed. The number of teams fielded in each league is directly related to the number of coaches that volunteer. Only when additional head coaches volunteer are players pulled from the waitlists. Coaches can either be adults or High School students. The commitment is a minimum of 3 hours per week: 1.5 hr practice plus 1 hr match. Responsibilities include communicating directly with players, families and league officials, establishing practice plans, and managing the team during practices and matches. Prior coaching and volleyball playing experience a plus, but not required -- coaching training, mentoring and supporting materials are provided by MYV. As benefits, children of coaches receive a $70 discount and coaches have the ability to influence practice times and locations. For HS students, community service credits are available. If interested, fill out the Coach/Assistant Coach form on the Registration page. As per MYA policy, a background check is required for adult coaches.  To comply with Fairfax County gym use policies, coaches must also certify as a Volunteer Building Director (takes only 15-20 minutes).
