Managers & Coaches General Information

Updated Friday March 23, 2018 by Franklin Little League.

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 (NEW FOR 2018)
  • Managers Meetings for each division - before the season begins
  • Skills Assessment Tryouts (and make-up date) - for Managers of Major and Junior Divisions only
  • Team Player Draft - for Managers of Major and Junior Divisions only
  • All-Star Tournament Player Draft - for Managers of Rookie, Minor, Major, and Junior Divisions

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.

If you registered to coach or manage, you must submit one of the following before starting to perform your volunteer duties.  If submitting the “New Volunteer” form, this must be submitted with a copy of government-issued photo identification (driver’s license, passport, etc.).  These documents can be submitted in person at the January Information Day, emailed to Background Check Submission, or mailed to Franklin Little League, P.O. Box 320301, Franklin, Wisconsin 53132.

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.
