Vernon Baseball is now accepting Head Coach applications for 18U AAA & AA, 15U AA & 13U AA teams for the 2017 season. Applications must be submitted by October 24th and final selections will be determined by November 14th, 2016. For all divisions, AA & AAA head coaches will be expected to run a single combined season, that includes spring & summer play. Head Coaches will also be required to help organize and run a winter training & development program, utilizing the new indoor facility at Marshall, in coordination with the Division Director that begins no later than Mid-January.
Vernon Baseball will also select Summer Ball Head Coaches for 15U A, 13U A, 11U AAA & A (10 year old players only) and 9U using the same application process & timeline. Head Coaches for these teams will be expected to begin organizing and holding development practices by April 1st, 2017. These head coaches will also be strongly encouraged to help organize and run a winter training & development program, utilizing the new indoor facility at Marshall, in coordination with the Division Director that starts well before the Vernon spring season.
Vernon Baseball is committed to ensure that coaches have the support needed to develop strong programs. This will allow them to be competitive and have a realistic chance of winning games with the goal of being Provincial Champions. Their teams will have to play in Non-Okanagan Tournaments over the course of spring & summer and should make 2-3 trips to the coast. The BLE, VOC and Coastal tournaments draw better competition and are just an example of the tournaments that are available. These tournaments need to be registered & paid for in Feb/March, so coaches need to have a plan early in the new year. They are great team building events for players and parents and are supported by Vernon Baseball.
