Coaches responsibilities

Thank you for your interest in coaching girls’ softball. Our organization cannot function without volunteers such as yourself. Following is a brief description of the minimum responsibilities for each coach volunteer.

    1. Create weekly practice plans (sample plans and activities are posted at for your use. There is no need to create plans from scratch unless you wish)

    2. Hold at least one team practice per week. Practice dates and times are at the discretion of the coach but should be at a time that is convenient for most players/parents. Practices should run for approximately an hour and one-half.

    3. Attend and coach one to two game per week. Games usually occur once during the week (evenings) and once on a weekend day.

    4. Attend and coach in skills clinics each season (fall, winter and spring). Clinics may be substituted in place of regular team practices during the season and are organized by SLL administration. Attendance and participation at clinics is mandatory. Clinics are intended to standardize coaching methods as well as providing coaches with skills and methods they can use during team practices.

    5. Attend one skills clinic planning meeting per season.

    6. Attend one safety meeting per season.

    7. Complete and pass a CORI check.

    8. Complete concussion protocol training.

    9. Act at all times in a manner that sets a good example for all youth participants, parent spectators and umpires.
