Junior Coach Program
New for 2017
The Junior Coach Program is available to baseball players who wish to be involved in coaching T ball aged players and starting their leadership experience. The purpose of the Junior coach role is to provide valuable mentoring and exposure to quality coaching for T ball players. Players will have the opportunity to develop leadership skills and “give back” by becoming a Junior coach in our T ball program.
The program allows each junior coach to gain the aptitude and opportunity to advance their knowledge and skills of the game and an opportunity to develop valuable leadership and communication skills.
This is a volunteer program and as such the time spent can be accredited to community service hours in your local school program. Each participant will be given a certificate of appreciation that can be used as a referral for future resume building.
This is an unique opportunity to gain experience for future positions and assist in setting or clarifying future goals in life and the career experience to begin reaching those goals. For many this can be an opportunity to make lifelong impressions on the lives of younger children and see the benefit and rewards in a positive manner.
To qualify to be a junior coach, you must meet the following criteria:
Players interested in becoming involved in the Junior Coaching program should login to their account, go to apply to coach and select Junior Coach and submit.
Deadline for applications is April 1, 2017. Please note there is a limited number of JR coaching positions so all who apply may not be offered a position.
The T ball program runs for 10 weeks starting mid May and ends with the activities at Colman Day in July. The 9 sessions are held Saturday mornings at Mornington Park from 8:45 AM through 12 noon. The T ball program is a development one where the focus is on teaching the mechanics of baseball. Each session is broken into 4 training stations which will have 2 Junior coaches running each station. Each station will have a maximum of 4 players (2 per each coach). Stations are, Throwing, Catching, Hitting and Base running.
All coaches will be instructed on the techniques for each station prior to the sessions.
