In order to add additional players into the program we are always looking to add additional “Coaches” into the program. These “Coaches” do not need to be specific to being a baseball coach. We have a few members of Baseball For Life who are members of the Charlotte business community that act as a “Coach” in just leading the development of the young adults in the program.
We also are always looking for additional help with some of our community service projects and field rebuild program so if you are unable to commit to the roles and expectations below of being a “coach” but would still like to volunteer we are always happy to have extra helping hands.
The primary requirements of a group Coach involves:
The Baseball For Life (BFL) Coach will serve as the first point of contact between their group’s athletes and BFL. It is the job of a Coach to guide the athletes and peer models during baseball and non-baseball focused BFL activities. BFL’s goal is to build relationships that allow youth and leaders to develop life-skills, helping participants prepare for successful futures on and off the field.

Have a passion for volunteerism and investment in Charlotte’s youth
Be comfortable serving as a leader and understand the importance of leading by example.
Be familiar with and enjoy the game of baseball.
