Hey there Coach!

To start - thank you so much for stepping up and making a real difference in your players' lives. Coaching a team is one of the most challenging,  rewarding and fun ways to volunteer, and we could not run a great program without you!

Before you take the field, there are some certifications we require of all our coaches. Most of these you will ony have to do once:

- You must register yourself as a Coach in our system. This is the same process as your child, using your Sport Signup Play Account, but there is no charge to register as a volunteer. This will get you assigned to your team & roster and allow you to input your scores on our app.

- You must pass a background check. The park pays for this, and it must be done/renewed every two years. You also do this through your account - but you must register as a coach FIRST before the option "BACKGROUND CHECKS" will appear.

- You must complete (one-time) "Coaching Youth Baseball"  by our governing body, Babe Ruth / Cal Ripken baseball:

- Softball coaches - you must complete membership and training by the NYSCA at - choose "Lake Lytal Lassie League" as the member organization and choose Softball, Concussin and Abuse Prevention Courses.

- (Baseball only) You must complete (one-time) a concussion course from the U.S. Centers for Disease Control:

- (Baseball Only) You must complete (one-time) a federally mandated Safe Sport training course:

Please email your certificates from the 3 courses above to


Thank you again for coaching! We look forward to the season!
