Volunteer

house league volunteer opportunities

 

"Little League baseball is a very good thing because it keeps the parents off the streets." - Yogi Berra

 

Did you know that all House League coaches are volunteers, and that no formal baseball or coaching experience is necessary? All that's required to get involved is a positive attitude, enthusiasm, and a willingness to learn. 

We'll help you along the way, providing you with a Coach's Handbook, outlining skills the kids should be learning, ensuring that your season is fun and enjoyable. 

How to Become a Coach

  • Must be 15 years of age or older
  • Coaches under the age of 18 must be accompanied by a guardian or 18+ Head Coach/Assistant Coach at all times
  • Indicate interest during your child's registration, or directly contact House League Director Josh Ward (joshjsward@gmail.com). Please email Josh if you're unsure about coaching but would like to learn more.

Additional Considerations

  • If you would like to co-coach with someone specific, please let us know. 
  • A current Vulnerable Sector Check (VSC) is required for coaches and assistant coaches who are 18 years or older. We will provide a letter in order to complete this requirement. The VSC is valid for two years, and one completed for another league can be used.
  • If applicable, coaches automatically have their child placed on their team. Any further player requests are at the the House League Director's discretion. 

When will I hear about coaching if I’ve indicated interest?

  • Mid-April: Coaches will be contacted by the House League Director
  • A start-up coaches meeting will be held online in early May. Uniform, hat, and equipment handout will be discussed then. Players will receive their uniform, top, and hat at their first scheduled team practice.
