Each year FYBL is fortunate to have significantly more interest and requests to manage or coach than available teams. We do our best to identify coaches that possess many of the following characteristics:
Promotes sportsmanship, fair play, teamwork and respect
Sets an appropriate example in behavior and attitude
Demonstrates an enthusiastic and positive approach to instructing players
Possess an in-depth knowledge of Little League rules
Has a solid grasp of baseball fundamentals
Displays a constructive and positive attitude in helping players build from dissapointment
Has a previous service to the league in areas other than coaching (frequent participant in all FYBLactivities)
Creates a FUN atmosphere for ALL players
A coach's win/loss record from previous seasons is not a consideration
Managers are selected in Feb. for American division and early March for all other divisions.
FYBL recognizes and appreciates that managing is a significant committment and we are grateful to all who volunteer. In many cases there are often qualified individuals who aren't provided an opportunity to manage because of limited teams. FYBL reminds everyone that there are many other opportunities to contribute to the league. Please don't hesitate to come forward and ask how.
