Each team needs to nominate a coach. Some teams may have assistance from one of the clubs senior players but ideally they are there to teach and mentor a parent or family member of a junior player.
Coaches play an important role in the sporting life, but also the everyday life, of the participants they coach. Coaches influence the development of sport-specific skills and sporting performance, and also the participant’s development as a person and their approach to other aspects of their life. While at times it can be challenging, coaching is also a very satisfying role.
You do not have to be a "baseball expert". Coaching is an area where these is a wealth of knowledge from people within the club, clinics by the association and resources from the state/national body.
The team coach MUST complete the ASC General Coaching Principles, Working with Children Clearance and L1 or higher Coaching Accreditation.
