Optimist International Youth Sports Coaches and Parent Training

Optimist International has teamed up with Coaching Coaches, LLC, to provide Optimist Clubs with access to the highly acclaimed Coaching Coaches online training programs for both volunteer coaches and parents who have children participating in youth sports. Optimist International is providing this service to its Clubs in order to elevate its standards in working with youth sports participants.

The selection of the Coaching Coaches training programs will not only help further educate its coaches and parents, but will help provide all children participating in an Optimist-sponsored program the best sporting experience possible. Education is the key to growth and Coaching Coaches prides itself on positively effecting change through a more educated coach and parent.


Bill Bommarito, President of Coaching Coaches, LLC said: “I am proud and thrilled about this new relationship with Optimist International. Together, we have set a new standard for how our children are coached and supported when playing youth sports. Optimist International is setting the bar on a national scale for how a youth sports program is positively delivered.”

The online coach’s training is filled with insightful tactics and strategies that will help any volunteer coach deliver an even more effective youth sports program.
