Coaches Corner

Rocklane Junior League wants you to become a successful youth baseball coach and just as importantly we want you to enjoy coaching and being part of a team. The links we have found have some very useful topics and video presentation. Would you like to Volunteer to be a coach at RJL?

Coaching Overview

With 200+ players per year involved in Rocklane Junior League we are always in need of volunteer coaches.  If you enjoy working with the youth of our community, want to see your player get the most out of their baseball experience then we encourage you to consider volunteering to be a head or assistant coach.

All coaches must pass a routine background check.

Coach Activities/Responsibilities:

  • While no prior baseball coaching or playing experience is required, it is helpful
  • Communications to parents
  • Get other parents involved/assistant coaches
  • 1 Weekly practice (2 before the season gets underway)
  • 1-2 Weekly Games 

Time Commitment:

  • Practices 1-2 per week, 1 hours each
  • Games 1:40 (average) games 
  • Weekly lineups and parent communications - 1 hour or less 

Two or three coaches are designated per team.  Afterwards other parents are encouraged to help at practices and games especially at the younger ages.  Attention spans being what they are it helps to keep the players engaged at all times.  It is not uncommon to see 4 or 5 parents helping out with fielding, pitching, hitting, etc. during practice and coaching bases and keeping the dugout orderly during games.

To keep teams competitive we only lock or freeze 3 players at the draft.  These are generally the coach's players.  We attempt to keep team sizes to a manageable 10-12 players per team.

Did you know that coaching hours are eligible for service hours and some company matching programs?  If you have questions please contact us at [email protected]  Thank you for supporting Rocklane Junior League.
