Coaches and Managers Information
Coaches, managers and support staff of a team are very important role models to all junior players. These people, through their own behaviour (on & off the field) have an important impact on player attitude, enjoyment, performance and development.
Information for Coaches
The coach’s main job is to equip team players with appropriate skills and knowledge in order to play the game. This should be done in an encouraging and instructive way, with an emphasis on fun. Safety is paramount at all times, and bad sportsmanship is discouraged. A team’s manager (with other parent support) is responsible for lifting some of the coach’s burden on game day, but maintaining overall discipline in the team is down to the coach.
Information for Managers
A manager plays an important role in the efficient running of a baseball team. The manager is the main contact between the Club and the team. Any details of draw changes, available courses, special events etc. will be communicated to each team through their manager. It’s up to the manager to pass this information on usually through a ring-around, email, at training or on match day. The coach should be allowed to fully focus on preparing a team for match day, without having to deal with administrative distractions. It’s the manager’s job to ensure this happens.
