All of the RYFSA teams are coached by volunteer coaches. It is important we get volunteers to help run RYFSA softball and coaches are one of the most important pieces to make seasons successful for these young ladies.
At 8u there will be 2-3 coaches.
Our 8u age coordinator is the contact person and can help you with questions.
Coaches can help a team succeed by:
1) Making sure the girls are having a blast.
2) Making sure the parents know when games and practices are, what your expectations are for what they wear and when they show up, and communicate any urgent messages like rainouts or schedule changes.
3) Improve in their understanding and skills of softball. We have a staff of board members, coaches, and committees ready to help with this part. There will be a coaches meeting where we go over everything we can think of to make your job easier (April 23rd, more info to come).
All head coaches will need to be ACE certified, concussion trained, and background checked. Assistant coaches need to be concussion trained and background checked. This information and the links will be provided to you once teams are made from your age coordinators.
