Recognizing high school coaches who make Kansas City a better place to live, work, and play.


Know a coach who’s making a difference? You can nominate him/her today!

Since 2017, C You In The Major Leagues has teamed up with Blue Cross and Blue Shield of Kansas City (Blue KC) to recognize the Blue KC Coaches with Character.

OUR GOAL:

To spotlight high school coaches who, through their leadership on and off the field, are helping to grow amateur sports in the Kansas City area, and make our community a better place to live, work, and play.

OUR PROCESS:

Each Blue KC Coaches with Character honoree will be selected from nominations submitted by fans, with one honoree announced each month from April-September.

RECOGNITION:

Honorees will be recognized in the following ways:

  • Spotlight on 610 Sports Radio
  • VIP gift package from Blue KC and C You In The Major Leagues, including two special game experiences at Kauffman Stadium and an invitation to meet Royals Hall of Famer Mike Sweeney.
  • During the offseason, they’ll be invited to a reception with CYITML Founder Dayton Moore.
  • Blue KC will make a $2,500 donation to CYITML in honor of the selected coach.
