Coaches FAQs

Q: How do I sign up to become a coach?

If you are interested in coaching, please see the Coaching section for more information.

Q: I would love to coach but have never played baseball before

Well there’s never been a better time to learn!!!!  All you need is the enthusiasm and willingness to learn. We welcome Dad’s and Mom’s to get involved with coaching. A great coaching resource is online at

We will also attempt to pair you up with someone that has previous coaching experience.


No experience necessary! In our younger Divisions (Blastball thru Tadpole), we have a set of practice plans for you to follow.  Every practice is laid out for you so all you have to do is follow the plans.

We have a number of clinics to help you throughout the season. We will be offering Coaches training sessions both during the season and in the off-season. We also offer shadow coaching at our Pre-season clinics.  You will be able to get hands on experience with our professional coaches and learn some tricks of the trade. Please watch our website for more info.

Q: I am new to Cloverdale Baseball and don’t know anyone to coach with

Welcome!  We have a great bunch of friendly individuals who belong to our organization!!!!  We will be able to pair you up with one of these great coaches.

Q: How much of a time committment is required?

Typically, depending on the level of play, coaching consists of 1-2 practices a week and 1-2 games a week.  A copy of the game schedule will be provided to you prior to the start of the season. You can pick your practice dates/times around your scheduled games.

Q: What if I am not able to commit to make it to every game/practice?

We understand that everyone has a life outside of the ball field. That is why there are usually 2-3 coaches per team, (and lots of extra parents who would be happy to help).  So, if one can’t make it to a game, the others can take over or a parent can help out.
