One of our tasks at hand before the season starts is to vet coaches for the new season. We start this process early in order to guarantee we have enough coaches for our teams. Some leagues fill earlier than others. While we do ask for volunteer sign up during the player registration process, over the past few years we have asked for coach interest earlier than that.

We want to share some important notes regarding a few of the leagues that impact coaches:
- Spring Senior teams will all be playing within a travel league to the surrounding towns. ALL PLAYERS will be participating.
- Our Juniors division will be getting a complete overhaul which will make this league more competitive while still staying true to aiding in the development of the players.
- Tee Ball will expand their game schedule to include games twice a week after an initial period of one practice and one game weekly.
The other leagues may have minor adjustments, and all will have coach and player support.
Coaches will be required to attend our Coaches Clinic led by esteemed and well-educated baseball coaches.
Also, in a continual effort to deliver high quality instruction to our players, the BYBI is once again requiring all coaches to participate in the (free) USA Baseball Coach Certification Program. This program has great benefits whether you are head coaching or assistant coaching, so we ask anyone interested in coaching in any degree to go through this online training. If you have done these certifications in the past, you do not need to do it again.
Taking this online certification does not guarantee you a coaching position, however the skills learned will be beneficial for you.
You can begin by visiting the website noted below and creating a profile to sign in, work through the certification at your own pace, but note that your league director will be reaching out to you to collect your certification prior to the start of practice. At the completion of your certification, you will need to supply your league director with a screen shot or pdf of the completed certificate(s) for your league via email.
You can click the links below to take the certification.
Head Coaches and Assistants participating in Lil' Sluggers, Tee Ball, Instructional, and Juniors are required to complete the A Certification (Go to https://usabdevelops.com/.../18582/certification-pathways and head to Coach Certifications where you can find each certification course)
Head Coaches and assistants participating in International, Majors, and Seniors are required to complete both A and B Certification (Go to https://usabdevelops.com/.../18582/certification-pathways and head to Coach Certifications where you can find each certification course)
This website has tons of great, free info from baseball experts that can help coaches in all areas of practice plans as well.
