If you are a TeamUnify customer and need to add a coach skip to Converting Members to Coaches.
Once you have found your name, click on your name.
If for some reason you do not see your name, search for it in the Search for Coaches field.
Your details will now load into view. As a requirement for YMCA Coach
Registration, you will first need to ensure that all of your General Information
is complete and accurate.
Inside your Coach information scroll down to the Update Certificates area.
In this area you are asked to input valid expiration dates for
each of the required certifications.

Once this information is entered, click Save and then your

In the next step we will cover adding a new Coach for TeamUnify Customers. Skip to the last step if you are a NonTeamUnify Customer.
Converting a Member to a Coach
For TeamUnify customers it is easy to convert current members to YMCA
Coaches. Simply go to Team Admin > Account/Member Admin and
then the Members Tab.
Select the member(s) you would like to convert to a YMCA Coach and then
click Edit > Convert Members to YMCA Coaches.
Then click OK.
To verify the change you can go to YMCA Admin > Coaches tab
and then find the Member on the list.
In the next step we will talk about adding a new coach/member and setting their Admin Level.
Setting Coaches Admin Level
There are a few differences when adding a new coach to your YMCA Admin as a TeamUnify customer. In Account/Member Admin (AMA) you can convert a Member and Account to a YMCA Coach. This can only be done by a SuperUser. If you are not a SuperUser and you would like a YMCA Coach login or to manage a coach from the YMCA Admin please ask your team‘s web administrator or SuperUser to add them.
If you directly add a coach from the YMCA Admin a Member and Account will automatically be generated in your TeamUnify Account/Member Admin (AMA). If the Coach is a member it is best practice to convert that member to a YMCA Coach as seen in the previous step.
If you would still like to add a new coach login using the YMCA Admin
go to YMCA Admin > Coaches, then
click the + Add Coach button.
Fill out the following information. Make sure to set TeamUnify Admin Level then Save.
The new Coach will be added in your AMA and you can then send them login information via the Communicate button in AMA.
Submit Coach Registration
Lastly, to submit your coach registration, scroll back to the top of the
page and click the Submit Coach Registration button.
That is it. You will now receive additional details via email, and you will see the status of your registration on that page. You can return to this page at any time in the future to review the status of your submission.
You are now done with the coach registration submission process. If you need to submit registrations for other coaches, you may do so now, or you can submit your Team Registration if it has not been completed already.
Removing a Coach from YMCA Admin
If you would like to remove them as a coach from YMCA Admin, but not as
a member, select the member check box, then click Edit > Remove As YMCA Coach(es).
Next we will cover requesting a Meet Sanction.
