Thinking like a 12-year-old and acting like a responsible adult at the same time.
It’s not for everyone, but if you think you can swing it, you are ready to run a Little League Baseball team.
Things you'll need:
* Little League rulebook
* Age and health forms
Prepare to be interviewed by local Little League officials, who will determine your general knowledge of baseball. Rules also mandate a criminal background check.
Attend a clinic sponsored by Little League Baseball in your region. Clinics are held during the winter and early spring, dates are available at http://www.littleleague.org/clinics/index.asp
Learn the Little League Baseball rules. You will be given a handbook, but changes in areas such as pitch count and age requirements are made yearly. Stay up to date with the latest changes at http://www.littleleague.org/leagueofficials/forms.asp
Evaluate the players on your team. If you are a returning coach, you will have drafted your roster of 12 to 15 players the previous fall. If you are starting with someone else's picks, you will learn after a few practices individual strengths and weaknesses.
Get coaches, volunteers and parents with baseball know-how to conduct one on one sessions with players to develop their skills and confidence. According to Little League Baseball rules, everyone on your roster has to play.
Designate an adult to serve as bench coach. That person should chart necessary statistics, make sure players are ready to bat in the correct order and keep score. Giving some of these duties to players is another way to get everyone involved in the game.
Hold regular weekly meetings with parents. Ask for volunteers to distribute the game and practice schedule information, arrange carpools, keep track of equipment and coordinate beverage and snack hosts for each game.
