The Ethical Youth Coach certification is an educational program and certification for professionals and volunteers who coach youth sports. The Ethical Youth Coach (EYC) certification is composed of three elements, all of which a coach must pass to call himself or herself an EYC Certified Coach. The elements are as follows:
2) A background check.
3) A signed Coaches Code of Conduct.
The EYC certification provides coaches with recognition of their ethical practices, while adding to their knowledge base. Furthermore, the certification ensures parents that qualified individuals are coaching their children.
