Due to an increase in our normal registration numbers, we have an immediate need for additional coaches/managers for several teams. We still need two for T-Ball Baseball, two for Coach-Pitch Baseball, and one for softball.
If you have any experience whatsoever and would like to have a chance to make your mark by giving something back to our youth, please message us ASAP. The approximate time commitment is 2-4 hours per week for practice and 2-4 hours per week for games.
Please be reminded that all volunteers must pass a basic background check for the safety of our kids.
There is a mandatory meeting scheduled for all coaches and managers in the T-Ball and Coach-Pitch divisions. Supplies, team rosters (blind draft), and general rules will be distributed and discussed.
