Richmond City Baseball Association is seeking a dynamic, responsible role-model to provide instruction and coaching for the 13U AA/AAA program under the direction of the RCBA Executive Board.
As part of Richmond City Baseball Association’s initiative to place greater emphasis on player development and to provide more opportunities for players wishing to play in a “rep” program.
The continued goal of this two-team spring 13U AA rep approach is to provide a more focused product, and wider developmental reach. In addition, a more performance-oriented AA program will provide a greater developmental platform for players that will aid in their transition from 13U AA spring to AA or AAA.
13U AA/AAA will run joint practices both pre-season and throughout the season when schedules permit (spring and summer). Working with the RCBA Executive, the Head Coach will introduce consistent systems play and approach, so first-year AA players will find fewer barriers to entry into AAA as second-year players, and second-year players will receive similar developmental opportunities that will help them move on to higher levels of play the following season.
The coaching staff will train together through winter programming. Evaluations and tryouts will be held prior to the two AA rosters being named in February.
The Head Coach will oversee the 13U AA/AAA teams throughout the Spring and Summer Seasons. The 13U AA season starts in January/February with team selection try-outs and includes between 16 and 24 league, tournament and exhibition games. The team selection for AA and AAA will be done prior to the BC Baseball declaration play-down the season concludes with the Provincials Championships in early August with a possibility of representing B.C. at the BC Baseball events.
The ideal candidate is someone who is prepared to put in the necessary amount of time and energy required to coach young baseball players, enjoys teaching the game, exhibits patience, and will promote a safe and positive baseball
environment under the guidance of the RCBA Executive. A successful candidate will work jointly with both AA programs (AA & AAA in Summer) in conveying a common and consistent messaging of on-field and off-field program goals to aid in the progression through this program.
Interested candidates must be willing to complete their coaching certification for 13U AAA, go through the standard Richmond City Baseball Security Background Check (CRC) and provide a current Province of BC (or other Province if recently moved) driver’s abstract.
If you have what it takes and would like to help continue to build a dynamic baseball program please contact All-Star Coordinator Rob Houston email@example.com and President John Braaten firstname.lastname@example.org. Application closed Friday, November 3, 2017.
