Skills Required

  • Organization - its important to ensure a smooth experience for 100+ Gr8 and Gr9 players, coaches and parents. Able to create and maintain season XLS - schedule, standings, player drafts... (Templates are available)
  • Leadership - You will be leading a crew of 10 x Head Coaches and their assistants into the season. They need to trust you and be confident in your decisions.
  • Administration - be comfortable creating or executing workflows as required
  • No Baseball technical nor Coaching skills required - this is an entirely off-field position so knowing how to throw a curve-ball is not required
  • Kindness, friendliness, interest, agileness - all skills that make running Recreational sports more fun for everyone

Realistic Time Commitments

Jan-March @ 40 hours + April-Aug @ 20 hours +  Aug-Jan @ 5 hours = about 65 hours per year

The majority of your work will be in the pre-season period culminating in the player draft (Jan to March). Once all players are on teams, the job dramatically quiets down.
