INFORMATION FOR COACHES
Welcome to Dollard Baseball’s coaches page. Whether you are a first time coach or a seasoned veteran, we hope the information contained in our website will help you effectively coach and manage your team.
There are three important factors to remember when coaching youth sport:
- Make it fun for the children
- Be an effective teacher
- Allow children to develop friendships.
But how do we go about this? There are a few basic guidelines to follow but, for the most part, it is YOU as an individual that will determine, through your imagination, as well as trial and error, what best works for you – basically be yourself and don’t be afraid to try new things. On behalf of Dollard Baseball, and especially on behalf of the kids, we congratulate you on your decision to become a major part of the life experience of the next generation.

Coach Selection Process
Upon receipt of all application forms, the Baseball Development Committee will review the applicants for each team, and schedule interviews with perspective coaches as necessary. The Baseball Development Committee will be tasked with evaluating all candidates and selecting the coaches for the season.
The prospective coaches will be determined based on baseball knowledge, baseball accreditations, and experience. When making final decisions The Baseball Development Committee also strongly considers the candidate’s ability to work with people in an amateur sports environment, and players at a certain caliber.
All coaches will be required to be trained and be certified for their respective levels, as well as be willing to undergo a background check if selected.
