    Team Managers and Coaches Needed!

    Sunnyvale Southern Little League is made up strictly of volunteers. Our children enjoy one of the finest sports organizations around, thanks to the many people who contribute their time and talents during the season. We are always in need of team managers and coaches. Without these key volunteer positions we would not be able to form teams for all of the kids who want to play baseball.

    Want to help but you have never run a baseball team before?

    SSLL offers trainings and clinics for new managers and coaches who are interested in helping but do not have the experience.

    Please consider volunteering your time during the Spring 2016 season by managing your own team or helping managers who need additional coaches. Contact SSLL league President, Jean Roberts at SSLLprez@gmail.com for more information.

    Positive Reviews for SSLL Clinics

    "I felt the sessions with coach Max were spot on with the content and methods.  Max focuses on strong fundamentals without overteaching.  If all coaches focused on the same basic concepts that Max uses, and the players practiced those concepts, the Sunnyvale Southern players as a whole would improve greatly." -Majors Coach
     
    "The ASA clinics get better each time... I love the extra clinics that we have taken advantage of because the ASA clinics have given my players some extra time to work on the basic fundamentals.  Joe and the other coaches are always responsive and available and willing to work with me on whatever I need so I am grateful for their help!" - Farm Manager
     
    "At this level, keeping the kids interested and paying attention can be challenging. But Jason did a great job of that by being funny and sharing examples from current MLB players to illustrate his points." - Majors Manager
     
    "Working with Duane from ASA worked out great.  We kept things simple by working on one, maybe two areas per practice, moving from basic fundamentals to advanced techniques.  By having the same coach for each session, it allowed us to really make an all around difference for our young players." - Angels Manager

    Because the Team Managers and Coaches are busy warming up the players, they need parent volunteers to prep the fields before and after the games.

    Click here to watch a video on Field Prep and let your Team Managers or Admin know which game days you can help out.
