Are You a Coach, Athletic Director, PE Teacher, or Parent?
FOLLOW US AT:
FIYA has created a Pinterest page for the sole purpose of providing tips and resources we find helpful per sport per FIYA member needs.
We recognize that a lot of coaches in FIYA can be volunteers, parents, or first time coaches and we wanted to give all of our participants easy and FREE access to materials that will in turn give you a better understanding of your sport and how to coach your team in the best, most successful way possible.
FIYA first and foremost is child-centered. So from nutrition to injury prevention for youth athletes, to fundamentals and drills according to each sport, FIYA's Pinterest boards will assist you in creating the most positive environment for you and your team to compete in our programs.
Each FIYA Sport has its own board in which you can find anything including but not limited to: sport fundamentals, drills, practice plans, fun games, team building activities, important stretches, appropriate youth strengthening exercises, motivational and mindfulness practices, how to teach/ coach the sport, and other interesting and important tips!
As our traditional sports programs are put on hold, now can be a great time for coaches, athletic directors, parents, and even PE teachers to really dive deeper into youth sports. Learn new ways to diversify your practices or classes and work on the aspects of your team's game that need improvement. Starting next year we'll also be offering a new sport, Floorball and continue offering unique sports like Ping Pong and Dance competitions which each have their own resources for your school to start a team!
Get ahead of the game for when FIYA sports will resume and for next year's offerings by checking out our Pinterest Boards for:

Everything in this board is focused on caring for your individual student athlete in the best way possible as they're developing and growing.
