Youth Baseball Coaching Rules and Regulations
By guest author: John Nowly
When you get the job as a new coach, it is important that you meet the league director. You might have already met the league director as he or she may have been the person that hired you. If this is not the case, I recommend you set up a meeting as soon as possible to review several things.
Get your notebook handy, as I will give you a list of some questions to ask them.
First, you should ask: May I get the final copy of the league rules and a game schedule if available? It is obviously important to get a finished copy as soon as possible, as this will be a blueprint for your calendar.
Second, you should ask: Will I have any assistant coaches? Do you know where I can find a couple?
Next I suggest you ask, What fields will we be playing at?
And, Do we have a block of time available for baseball practice and which diamonds?
The next question should be, What type of equipment do we have available?
Finally, inquire about special days that the team needs to get together. These days will probably include a picture day, uniform day and end of year tournament.
With this information in hand, you have the basis for some advanced planning and organization. I have found that being organized will help with everything you do for the coming season. I recommend you buy a spiral notebook or create a ring binder for the coming season. Notebooks tend to be easier to carry around and write on, while binders have the sleeves for handouts, schedules and other things. Either way you go, it is important to have one of the two.
