The Eastern Baseball Region is now accepting applications for the Head Coach position of the 11U “AAA,” 13U “AAA” and 15U “AAA” baseball teams for the 2020 season.
The Eastern Baseball Region consists of the Stratford, Northside, Cardigan, and Souris Baseball Associations. Practices and games are required to be played across the region based on the ratio of players that make the final roster.
Please submit your application/email for the Head Coach Position to firstname.lastname@example.org. Please indicate which team you are interested in coaching as well. The Assistant Coaches will be selected after the Head Coach is chosen. If you would also be interested in an Assistant Coach position, please indicate that on your application. Please indicate any relevant experience on your application/email as to why you would be the right choice for the coaching position.
The successful applicants will also be required to obtain certification through the National Coaching Certification Program (NCCP) that meets the minimum requirements for the applicable “AAA” age level. Certification must be completed prior to the team taking part in any Provincial Eliminations and/or Provincial Championships. More information on the NCCP Coaching certification can be found at https://nccp.baseball.ca/.
Application/email submission closes at midnight on 1 April 2020.
All applicants that are shortlisted will be required to participate in a face to face interview with representatives from the Eastern Baseball Region prior to selection. Our goal is to have the Head Coaches selected by 10 April 2020. I.D. camps and on-field tryouts will begin as soon as coaches are selected and the fields/facilities become available. The Eastern Baseball Region committee reserves the right to repost any or all position(s) again should no suitable coaches be found.
If you require further information please email email@example.com or contact a representative of your local baseball association.
