Coaches Info

Manchester Little League Managers & Coaches,

To All coaches signed up to Volunteer at Manchester Little League for the upcoming 2022 spring season, WE THANK YOU!!!   It is because of the time you put in and your overall hard work and dedication that enables the young children and teenagers in this town to experience playing baseball with their friends and neighbors.  This league is run by a group of volunteers, such as yourself.  We are here to help you in any way possible.  Below is a list of what we feel is needed to make this league and your team a success this season.  Please look it over and bring any questions or concerns that you have to your Division Player Agent or myself.  Thank you.  

Do note, we appreciate you very much for stepping up to help teach these children not only about the game of baseball but more importantly about overall life lessons, being a team player and most important, having fun!.

Coaches Responsibility List

  • Find a Team Mom, this is very important.  Your team mom will be your communicator via text, email and phone to your team parents for things like; schedules, fundraisers, stand coverages, picture day, team info and much, much more. It will take a lot off the shoulders of a manager and coach so you can concentrate on teaching the kids.
  • Make practices fun!! A good organized practice should be 60 minutes at the younger levels and 90 minutes for Minors and above.  Get your coaches and parents involved.  Come in to each practice with a game plan.  Incorporate breaking the kids up in groups with each group doing different instructional drills.  Practices should first incorporate discussing the days plan with the team and some light stretching.
  • The league has a couple Fundraisers to off-set the cost of running this Little League. Each parent gets assigned three Pick 3 tickets per child (up to two). These tickets will be distributed (Team Mom) at the beginning of the season.  Parents have already paid for these tickets with their registration fee.  Daily winning payouts for this fundraiser are made on a weekly basis.   More info on this can be found on our Fundraising page.  The proceeds from this fundraiser pay for the league umpires costs throughout the season.
  • The Super Grand Raffle fundraiser is where we sell 400 raffle tickets at $50 per ticket.  If we sell all tickets, the winning ticket selected at the MIT Championship game will win $10,000.00.  To maximize the number of tickets sold, we require each Little League team, Manchester Little League Travel Team and All-Star team to purchase a minimum of two tickets totaling $100.00.   Shared amongst a team, that is approximately $9 per parent.  More info on this can be found on our Fundraising page.  The proceeds from this fundraiser pay for a portion of our mortgage on the Indoor Training Facility. 
  • Each coach is required by Little League to pass a criminal background check that we run free of charge to you.  This process will take place during the month of March.  
  • This season we are requiring each coach in our league to attend our mandatory safety meeting at the Indoor Training Facility on Thursday March 10th starting at 6pm and ending around 8:30pm.  There is a minimal $5 charge for this and as a coach you will leave the safety meeting with a certification card good for three years.
  • For every HOME game that you have, your Team Mom needs to schedule one parent from your team to help work in the Snackstand for the length of that game.  It works out where a parent only has to do this one time per season.  More info on this can be found on our Snackstand page.  For every VISITORS  game that you have, your Team Mom needs to schedule one parent from your team to work the scoreboard on that field for the length of that game.  It works out where a parent only has to do this one time per season.
  • We do not have a full time grounds crew, so we need all the coaches to prep the fields prior to your games and practices.  Also, at the conclusion of your games and practices, fields need to be raked, dugouts swept, garbage cans cleaned and all equipment put away.  This is a lot of responsibility, but here is the trick.  Get your parents involved!!!!  While you are talking to your players after each practice and game, have your Team Mom or yourself get your moms and dads or older siblings to help out with these things.  Discuss this at your team meeting and make it happen. It will take a huge burden off your shoulders.
  • In order to get the fields and complex ready for Opening Day, we are blocking all field practices on Saturday mornings in March from 7am-11am on March 12th, 19th & 26th.  Each coach in our league is required to attend two of these three Saturday morning cleanups.  Attendance will be taken each Saturday, so please schedule you and your coaches now so the complex can ready and safe for the children in our league.
  • Opening Day is Saturday April 9th starting at 9am!!!
