THANK YOU TO THOSE COACHES WHO HAVE TAKEN CARE  OF THE FOLLOWING! 

 VALENTINE YOUTH COACH REQUIREMENTS

Nebraska Law:

BEFORE YOU BEGIN COACHING YOUR SPORT…

LB260 Requires all youth coaches to be Concussion Awareness Certified. The training is simple via PowerPoint presentation – free of charge! You will need to print your certificate of completion & turn it in to the Director’s office.

 AAU COACHING MEMBERSHIP

 Because we are an AAU Club, our coaches need to also become AAU members.  Their liability insurance helps to cover you in an unfortunate situation.  ALSO – because of the required background checks, we know our athletes are protected.  The membership covers all sports you coach for a full year for $16.  Make sure that you choose the extended membership as it travels with you where ever you go.  Coaches are required by AAU standards to participate in their POSITIVE COACHING ALLIANCE (free PowerPoint) found on their website.

Thank you

Adult Open Gym Form

(click on link above to download)

The program is set up as a simple solution for all ADULTS wishing to use the City Gymnasium. Previously, each time you wished to play, you were required to pay a small fee.  The problem unfortunately,  has been…sometimes not everyone paid to play, leaving the facility rental tab up to the others to cover.  Clearly, this is unfair!

What is Adult Open Gym?  It is a “membership”,  if you will, that enables the paid ADULT participants access to the gym.  Attached to the down-loadable form above –  on the second page  – is a schedule.  You can also view the Adult Open Gym Schedule on the Youth Calendar tab located on the Heart City Sports home page.  The times reserved are for pick-up basketball, volleyball, & walking.    If you have a group that would like other activities during these scheduled times,  please contact Jenny Reece @ 402-389-1675.

:Cost:

$10/year/person 19 + & release liability must be completed & submitted

18 and under: cost is $1 each time you play. You must sign in as well.

Adults do not have to pay $10 each time!  You must however, sign the usage form and return to the City Office or the Youth Activities office (3rd & Ray ST).  For those of you paying to do this, you can pick up a key at the City Office to open the gym.  We will keep a list of paid participants.  Plan ahead as our schedule is very busy at the gym.  Upon finishing your activity, please return the key to the City Office immediately.  We simply ask that all are responsible while using  the facility.  If things get out of hand, the program may be canceled.
