The YMCA and JCC of Greater Toledo is seeking volunteer coaches for the preschool basketball program at the Fort Meigs location in Perrysburg.

Interested volunteers are invited to a coaches' meeting at 7:30 p.m. Thursday at Fort Meigs YMCA, 13415 Eckel Junction Rd.

YMCA Youth Basketball is a co-ed program for children ages 3-5 and not enrolled in kindergarten. The program places a strong emphasis on fun, fair play, equal playing time, and learning the fundamentals of basketball, according to the organization's Web site.

Volunteer coaches would lead teams in weekly 30-minute evening practices and seven, 30-minute games on Saturday mornings, all held at Fort Meigs YMCA.

Score is not kept. All participants play and learn each position, and games are played with a lowered backboard and rim. Players receive participation awards.
