Managers and Coaches Must Register Online

In addition to registering your player, if you want to manage or coach you must register yourself in the system. This is separate from the Background Check which also needs to be done. To register as a coach you may do so during your child's registration by selecting either manager or assistant coach from the volunteer tab during registration.  If you forgot to do it during registration, simply log back into your account and click the volunteer tab and complete the information requested. Please follow these and if you still have issues contact the Registrar.

Background Checks

If you are going to interact with players on the field or at practice you need to get a yearly background check. For more details and a link to the background check application go to our Background Check page or by going directly to the background checks page on SportsEngine.

Concussion Training

All managers, coaches and team parents are required to finish the concussion training. You can find the link here.



Coaching Aids and Tips


How to be a good coach

Here are some suggestions. Some are common sense but others require a little work.
  • Be firm but fair when it comes to discipline.Demand promptness in yourself and your players.
  • Be positive when giving instruction or offering constructive advice.
  • Do NOT be overly concerned with your Win-Loss record. The success of your players' development is not dependent on your wins and losses.
  • Make the evaluation and opinion of your players yours, not a combination of other coaches, parents and outsiders. You have the first-hand knowledge of them so don't let popular opinion sway your thinking.
  • Learn to delegate responsibility to your assistants.
  • Communicate with your assistants.
  • Demand that your players hustle at all times.
  • Do not allow profanity.
  • Do not allow the throwing of equipment.
  • All coaches going to the coaching boxes should run, not walk. Set a good example.
  • All coaches should be in the game on every pitch. Be alert for all mistakes made on defense; i.e. positioning and mental errors. When a coach comes to realize that baseball is played one pitch at a time, an entire new world opens up for him and he becomes much more effective.
  • Use your voice during games. It is an asset and your players are used to hearing it. Don't become mute when the game begins.
  • Teach.
