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, as well as the updates that will follow, 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 the application form, the Director of Coach Development will review the applicants for each team and will schedule interviews with each prospective coach. He will discuss his recommendations with the Baseball Development Committee and the committee will provide their feedback on which coaches are to be selected.
The prospective coaches will be judged on their overall baseball knowledge, Baseball Canada NCCP accreditations and their experience as a coach in previous seasons.
