To last year's volunteer managers and coaches:

Franklin Little League greatly appreciates your service!  Our organization could not thrive without the help from volunteers like you!  We know that it is a significant time committment to manage and coach a team and we value your patience and understanding that it takes to work with our kids!  Again, a heartfelt thank you to all of you for your help!

For our upcoming season's managers and coaches:

Thank you for considering the role of team manager or coach.  Franklin Little League cannot put on a season without you!  This year, we'll be taking interest in managing and coaching positions via the online registration process.  You may express interest in a particular division while registering.  It is fast, easy, and free to register!

Please check the schedule for important dates or for last-minute updates.  There are several meetings or events that managers and coaches need to attend, including:

  • Managers/Coaches Safety Clinic - THIS MUST BE COMPLETED EVERY YEAR 
  • Managers/Coaches Meetings for each division - before the season begins
  • Team Player Draft - for Managers of Minor, Major and Junior Divisions only

Background Checks
Managers and Coaches must undergo and pass a routine background check.  This is conducted through Little League International's designated background-check partner.  You will receive a link from Sports Connect after you have registered in the system.  Everything is done online.

Key Documents

Below are some key documents that are necessary for all coaches and managers to be familiar with.  Please download these documents, read them, and keep them with you during the season.
