Coaching Expectations

What is Expected of BNLL's Managers and Coaches
The following excerpt is taken from the Little League Baseball Operating Manual. It is the criteria that Little League Baseball Inc. recommends that local leagues consider when selecting managers and coaches. 

"The Little League manager must be a leader. All managers must recognize that they hold a position of trust and responsibility in a program that deals with a sensitive and formative period of a youngster's development. It is required that the manager have understanding, patience, and the managers must realize that they are helping to shape the physical, mental and emotional development of young people. 

The Little League manager must be something more than a coach. Knowledge of the game is essential, but it is not the only badge of a Little League coach or manager. 

While an adult with training or background in the game is desirable in a candidate for manager or coach, league screening committees should look for other important qualities. 

It is the manager more than any other individual who controls the situation in which the players may be benefited. Improving the level of leadership in this vital area must be a continuing effort. 

Youngsters of Little League are strongly influenced by adults whose ideals and aspirations are similar to their own. The manager and player share a common interest in the game, a desire to excel, and determination to win. Youngsters often idolize their managers, not because the adult is the most successful coach or mentor, but because the manager is a source of inspiration. 

Managers must be adults who are sensitive to the mental and physical limitations of children of Little League age and who recognize that the game is a vehicle of training and enjoyment, not an end in itself. 

It has been stated many times that the program of Little League can only be as good as the quality of leadership in the managing personnel. New leagues particularly should make a determined effort to enlist the best adults in the community to serve as managers."
