Parent Volunteers: Manage or Coach a Team

Alderwood Little League teams are managed and coached by volunteers, typically parents of the players. Every team, from T-ball to Seniors needs one manager and at least two coaches. Managers and coaches must possess leadership ability and the know-how to work with young children. Training Little Leaguers in the fundamentals of teamwork, good sportsmanship and discipline should be the goals of all managers and coaches.

All managers and coaches are appointed by the President of Alderwood Little League and are subject to the approval by the Board of Directors. There is not seniority or tenure in serving as a manager or coach year to year.

Alderwood Little League provides training for all managers and coaches. In addition, all managers and coaches are encouraged to attend the player's clinics hosted by Alderwood Little League. Visit our "Resources & Training" page for more training material, including "Coaching the Alderwood Way" and links to coaching resources on the web.

To be considered, simply complete the OnField Volunteer application online. See the section below for specific application instructions. Major, Junior and Senior division manager applications are due in early December. T-Ball and Minor Division applications are accepted beginning in December and continue until all positions are filled at the start of the season.
