Thank you for volunteering!!
Check back here often for updates and information.
**Coaches are always needed - Lack of volunteers can mean larger rosters and less playing time - VOLUNTEER TODAY!!!
I want to coach - Great, fill out a coach application on the registration page. It is on the bottom of the page past the TBall box where you registered your kid. All prospective managers will be submitted to the Board of Directors for approval in late February.
All Managers & Assistant Coaches are required to complete a background check. Don't worry it is easy and we pay for it. There is a new online system this year, so don't go to the Sheriff's Office! If you are named a coach, we will direct you to the link.
All Managers must complete the Cal Ripken Coaching Certification. Assistant Coaches are also encouraged to get certified. This is available for $19.95 at http://www.ripkencoaching.org. The class is "Coaching Youth Baseball." This will help you with everything from organization, parents, drills and philosophy. Once complete, you can send your certificate to us electronically.
**You will be contacted in late February to discuss your desire to Manage or Coach with CCYL. We look forward to getting to know each of you.
Not Sure if you are ready? The two most common concerns...
"I don't have the time." - Coaching TBall is not as time consuming as you think. Each team has 3 Assistant Coaches and a Team Parent. Everyone works together and covers each other's back. The time you do put in will be more rewarding than you can imagine.
"I don't know baseball." - No Problem!! The baseball part is easy and we have plenty of help ready for you. The only requirement is that you know how to communicate and have fun with kids.
Still not sure? Let's talk. Contact the Commissioner Keith Wood firstname.lastname@example.org
