Coaching Requirements & Registration
Requirements and Forms
Thank you for volunteering for SCLL! The strength of our league is in our volunteers. Little League Baseball and the state of Washington have strict rules and guidelines that all volunteers must follow before they can participate in our program.
All volunteers must complete the following steps each year:
1. Register Online
Register as a volunteer online, and specify which type of position and level you are interested in.
2. Volunteer Application & Background Check
Watch your inbox for an email with a subject of "SALMON CREEK LITTLE LEAGUE Background Questionnaire Notification". These invitations will be sent out to volunteers after they register online. The email will be sent from instascreen.net and take you to the JD Palantine web site to complete your background check.
This is a National Little League requirement. Volunteers cannot participate in any activity with children until they have passed the background check and have been approved by the Board.
You will also need to email a photo of your driver's license to email@example.com, if you did not submit one with your registration form.
3. Review Important Documents
- SCLL Safety Rules
- Double Goal Coach Job Description
- SCLL Zero Tolerance Policy
- Concussion Information (Coach, Player/Parent)
- SCLL Coach Contract
Managers and Coaches are REQUIRED to complete the following:
4. USA Baseball "A" Certification Package
Complete the "A" Certification Package offered by USA Baseball (https://usabdevelops.com/USAB/Certification/ACertification.aspx) and email completion certificates to your commissioner (board list). There are four courses in the certificate package covering coaching, abuse awareness, arm care and first aid. This program does not need to be repeated after the first season. See below for more information.
5. Sudden Cardiac Arrest Awareness
6. Coaching Clinics
Attend at least one of the coaching clinics. Attending both clinics is suggested, as they contain different material and change from season to season. Bring your gloves and your questions. See the calendar page for times and dates.
7. Umpire Clinics
Each team must have a least one representative at the umpire clinic. It is recommended that all coaches attend. See the calendar page for times and dates.
If you have any questions, feel free to contact SCLL's Coaching Coordinator.
SCLL Coaching Clinics
Managers and Coaches are expected to attend one, if not both, Coaching Clinics. Learn from the best the NW has to offer. Watch for further details on time and locations for coaching clinics.
If you cannot attend either clinic, another Youth Coaching Clinic will fulfill this requirement.
See calendar page for dates and times of coaching clinics.
SCLL's Umpire Clinic
Although all volunteers are encouraged, one Manager or Coach from each team must attend this clinic. The clinics will cover all of the SCLL rules and policies including any new rules put into place for the current season.
See the calendar page for times and dates of umpire clinics.
