    • Coaches Evaluations

    • Inform the parents of the online NYSCA Coaching Rating System and request to be evaluated. Send them to the NAYS website at www.nays.org and ask them to click on the Rate Your Coach link (http://www.nays.org/rateyourcoach/). You will need to give the parents your NYSCA member number to be evaluated. Let them know you will only see the overall results and not have access to individual names or evaluations. You will be amazed by how much their honest evaluation will help you be the best you you can be.
