MANDATORY Coaches Meeting -The baseball and softball mandatory coaches meeting will be held on February 28th at 6:30pm at the Bixby Community Center. You must have at least one representative present at the meeting for your team. We will draw for practice fields, times, and location, also discuss rules and answer any questions.
Volunteer Coaches -The baseball and softball programs are dependent upon volunteer coaches. Anyone can volunteer to coach but must complete the following items to be certified as a coach:
- Complete a background check
- Complete the NYSCA coach’s certification for the league you are coaching
- Two coaches on each team must be CPR / AED certified.
Only certified coaches are allowed on the fields during games. The Board of Directors will work with the head coaches to insure that all coaches meet the certification requirements.
As a volunteer coach, you will focus on safety, well-being and overall development of the players. Always remember to keep the game simple and fun! The coaches must provide a positive sports environment that is free of drugs, tobacco and alcohol. To volunteer to coach, you can register as a coach using our registration software or you can indicate in your child’s registration that you would be willing to coach a team. If you have questions, you can contact the Board of Directors at email@example.com
Coaches Background Check – Background checks are required for any individuals that are on the field during games and practices. To complete the background check, please send an email to Robert.Stamm@BixbyYouthBaseball.org with Team name, First and Last name of coach and your email address. We will send you the link to perform the background check.
Background checks need to be renewed every 12 months. We use the same service as Bixby Youth Football and Whitey Ford Basketball so if you submitted for a background check for either of those organizations in the last 12 months, you will not need to do a new check. You will still need to submit your information so we can verify the check was performed in the last 12 months.
CPR / AED Certifications – Each team must have at least two coaches or parents that are CPR / AED Certified at each practice and game. Most CPR / AED certifications are valid for two years and if you do not have a current certification, it can be completed online. If you have a Red Cross / American Heart Association or other CPR/AED certification, it will suffice. If not, here is a link to one of the least expensive online CPR / AED certification courses – http://www.icpri.com/. Once you have completed your certification log on to your SportsPilot account and update your coaching information and under Coach Certifications. If you are having problems logging in email firstname.lastname@example.org.
Coaches Certification – Every coach and assistant coach is required to complete the National Youth Sports Coaches Association certification training program. https://www.nays.org/coaches/. Once you have completed your certification log on to your SportsPilot account and update your coaching information and under Coach Certifications. If you are having problems logging in email email@example.com.
