We are now accepting coach applications for our 2021 travel & tournament baseball teams. Our travel teams compete at various levels of competition between the ages of 10 - 15 years old.
The 10YO tournament teams compete in tournaments from May – July. The season consists of 3-4 weekend tournaments in May/June and the potential for 1-2 state tournaments in July. Coaches at this level can expect 1-2 practices per week from mid-April thru mid-July and must be committed to the 3-5 weekend tournaments. (This is a separate team from the 10YO Majors In House team the kids will play on too. It is encouraged & appreciated if tournament team coaches also coach a Majors team.)
At the 11 thru 15 age levels, the season consists of approximately 16 league games plus playoffs. These teams also compete in 3-5 weekend tournaments during this span (weekend tournaments and possible state tournaments). Coaches at these levels can expect 2-3 practices and games per week mid-April thru the end of July plus weekend tournaments.
Travel coaches are held to a Code of Conduct. You can view the code of conduct in our Travel Handbook or in the coach application. You can view more information about the OBA travel and tournament baseball program online here.
Coaches are selected by the OBA Operations Committee. Those interested in coaching must complete and submit an application for consideration. Coach selection will be based upon interest, baseball experience, coaching history and skills, and practice and game philosophy. All candidates must also complete our “Trusted Coaches” program prior to final selection and placement.
The deadline for applications is February 15, 2021.
