Vernon Baseball is now accepting Head Coach applications for 18U AAA/AA, 15U AA & 13U AAA/AA teams for the 2023 season. Applications must be submitted by November 15th and final selections will be determined by November 25th, 2021. 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 indoor facility at Marshall, in coordination with the Division Director that should begin around Mid-January.
Vernon Baseball typically 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 early April 2023. These head coaches will also be strongly encouraged to help organize and run a winter training & development program, utilizing the 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, continue to develop the kids and have a realistic chance of winning games with the goal of being Provincial Champions. Their teams will generally have to play in Tournaments over the course of spring & summer and have the opportunity to make trips to the coast for tournaments as well. The BLE, VOC and Coastal tournaments draw better competition and are just an example of the tournaments that are available. Open tournaments across the province can be found athttps://www.bcminorbaseball.org/page/show/4575151-tournamentsWe here in Vernon are also interested in hosting top talent tournaments and would love to work on idea to hosting tournament or even provincials again in 2023. Many of 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. If you have any questions please reach out to the division directors or myself for more information.
