QUESTION: What is the difference between a manager and a coach?
ANSWER: Managers organize the team practices and determine the lineups and playing time during the games. They are responsible for collecting, cleaning and returning the equipment, and are ultimately responsible for the behavior of their team, their coaches and their parents. Like managers, coaches are responsible for teaching the game to the kids at practices and games, and filling in as manager when needed.
QUESTION: As a parent, what can I do to help?
ANSWER: Support your coaches, as they are volunteering a great deal of time to ensure that your son or daughter enjoys the best possible season. Help out whenever you can by raking or lining the fields before a game, or picking up trash when you see it lying on the ground. Practice as often as possible with your child at home, for the better they become at the game, the more they will enjoy it. And most of all, be supportive of your children as they learn this game, cheer for both sides during the games and be kind to our umpires. Don't become one of those crazed "sports moms or dads" you read about in the news.
