Coaching Opportunities

Do you have an hour or so to spare each week in the spring or fall? No angry competition. Just fun! You don’t have to know much about baseball. You just need a heart for the players and a compassionate, enthusiastic spirit. It’s the most rewarding coaching experience you’ll ever have.   The season typically has approximately 18-20 teams and each team needs 2-3 coaches.
