Coaches,

The season is approaching fast.  You are receiving this because you have volunteered to be a coach for MCLL.  Thank you so much for volunteering your time to make a difference in the lives of our children.  We have a flurry of activity coming up so please read and make note of the information as it applies to you.  

Draft

The draft is this Wednesday 3/18 at Germantown Community Center.  Note: Tee-Ball does not draft.  If you cannot attend please designate one of your assistants as the team representative for the draft.  Please respond with the name of the person that will be attending.  The draft evaluation data will be sent tonight.  The times are as follows:

  • 6:15 - 6:30 - Intermediate/Juniors
  • 6:30 - 7:00 - Majors
  • 7:10 - 7:50 - Minors
  • 8:00 - 8:45 - Coach Pitch

Equipment & Local Rules 

Meeting this Saturday (3/21) at Germantown Community Center from 10am to 12pm.

We will cover the MCLL Local rules (some modifications from the Little League rule book) and distribute most of the equipment to head coaches this Saturday 3/21. Every team should have a coach at the meeting.   If you are a returning team, please respond if you still have equipment from last year and whether anything in your kit needs replaced.  For those that coached in the Minor Division last year - do you still have umpire equipment?

Sponsors

The goal is to have every team be sponsored.  This year team sponsors that sponsor at the $500 level get their name on the back of the uniforms.  Please let us know if you have a team sponsor.  The window to get names on uniforms is short so we Sponsor names by no later than this Sunday 3/22.  More info on sponsorship.

Assistant Coaches

Each team should have two assistant coaches identified with MCLL.  Please respond with the name of your two assistants are so we can make sure they are setup in the database.  For all divisions besides Tee-Ball, during the draft you can only protect a maximum of 3 coaches players (unless you are a returning team) and you need to have all 3 coaches identified before the draft to do so.

Umpires

Teams in Coach Pitch and Minors must also identify two parents who will volunteer to umpire games (so that they can rotate and not have to do each game.)  Please respond with the names of your umpires if you know who they will be or with "unknown" if you have not yet identified someone.

Application to Coach

Every coach (head and assistants) and umpire MUST complete an application to coach and have a background check run on them.  Applications will be available at the coaches meeting on Saturday.  Please bring a photo id.   Little League Application to Coach.
