Coaches FAQs

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

If you are interested in coaching, please see the Coaching section https://www.cloverdalebaseball.com/page/show/739973-coaches-information 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 www.baseballbclibrary.com.

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

Q: DO I NEED TO HAVE PREVIOUS COACHING EXPERIENCE TO COACH MY CHILD’S TEAM?

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.
