Managers & Coaches Information/Training

The great reward in coaching youth baseball is instilling a love for baseball in the players, while positively teaching a team positive attitude, character values, commitment and emotional composure.

Our league is only able to function when the people who give of their time and talents in being managers and coaches work with our league to become the best they can be. Kids learn from examples and we want our coaches to set the best examples. In order to provide you with the best possible set of skills for this we have developed a training protocol that will be fundamental to your success.  Below are the ways in which our league intends to guide new and veteran coaches in continued development of coaching skills and player development. We want our DPLL coaches to be sponges, continuing to seek improvement in themselves in order to help our young players succeed on and off the field.

The Manager and Coaches are responsible for the team and therefore responsible for completing the following requirements in order to ensure a positive experience this season. If you have any questions, concerns, or feedback please do not hesitate to contact our coaching coordinator, Evi Limon-Ngai at starlimon016@gmail.com during your season.  

DPLL thanks you for taking on this great challenge that will prove to be one of the most rewarding experiences!
