Fossil Creek Little League

Coaching Overview

The 25+ years of success that Fossil Creek Little League has had is from no small part of our amazing coaches. We have coaches that have been with our league for over 10 years. Each fall we recruit coaches for the fall and following spring season. Coach volunteers can be first timers or seasoned. Moms, dads, aunts & uncles even grand parents. Experienced coaches are preferred but beginners are also welcome. Little League University is a great online training tool to help beginner coaches develop their coaching skills. FCLL also has a Coaching Coordinator as a resource for ideas and suggestions.

Responsibilities of a Little League Coach 

The coach is the team leader. He or she is responsible for scheduling and running meaningful practices. Developing game time player placements and game strategies. Besides being the team leader they should also be a good role model for our players. Good sportsmanship and respect is a cornerstone of Little League.

Fall Season Requirements

For the fall season - 

All coaches, CP and above, should attend the seasons player skills assessment or The Look. This is the only opportunity for coaches in these divisions to see basic skills of new players or players that are moving up in division. If the head coach cannot be in attendance, a team assistant coach should be there to represent the team.

All coaches are required to attend the coaches meeting. At this meeting we review the rules of FCLL and the facilities we use. We review safety information and procedures in the event of an emergency or incident. For Coach Pitch and above we hold the player draft. If the head coach cannot be in attendance, a team assistant coach should be there to represent the team.

Spring Season Requirements

The responsibilities of our coaches during the spring season includes the same as the fall season and a few more.

In addition, each team is required to find a team sponsor. Information about sponsorship retirements can be found on the FCLL Sponsorship tab of our website.

Since player illegibility for post season tournaments must be provide if requested, accurate game records must be kept. The majority of this is on record by the league in the for of completed score cards. For kid pitch divisions, accurate pitch counts must be kept and days of rest followed.

Online training is also required.

The first is a concussion protocol program developed by the CDC. The Heads Up program is a 20 minute video with a few test questions and must be required by all head coaches. At the end of the program you will receive a downloadable certificate of completion which needs to be submitted to the Safety Officer prior to your first game. 

The second is the coaching training program paid for by FCLL. Big Al's Online Coaching program is a great resource for beginning and experienced coaches. This program fulfills the Little League requirement for the FCLL to provide training to our coaching staff.
