Thank you for your interest in coaching this year!  Volunteer coaches are the most important part of Little League, and all our players benefit from our dedicated and committed coaches.   The vast majority of our coaches are parents coaching teams their children are on, but that doesn't make them any less devoted to the development and success of all the players on the team!


Coaches are at the heart of any Little League. With coaching comes responsibilities: to your players, your fellow coaches, to parents and to the League. Below is a list of your some of your more important responsibilities. Failure to follow any of them will result in your being subject to discipline by LMLL.  Please take them seriously, as we do.

1.  Exercise proper behavior towards players, parents, umpires, coaches and League officials.

2.  Consider good sportsmanship and the safety of your players above all else.

3.  Conduct a reasonable number of practices before the season starts and throughout the season.

4.  Read, understand and strictly follow the rules applicable to your Division. (See the Spring Rec Rules page)

5.  Read the Little League International Playing Rules applicable to your Division.

6.  Educate yourself on how to coach baseball/softball/T-Ball and teach proper skills.

7.  Attend ALL mandatory coaching events.

8.  Report all game scores as directed by LMLL (Green Division and higher).

9.  Return all equipment at the end of the season as directed by LMLL

10.  Submit all player ratings at the end of the season as directed by LMLL (Spring Rec - Gold Division and higher).

11.  Remember that the game is for the players.

12.. Comply with all stated policies and procedures of LMLL, including of any league in which your LMLL team participates, and customary terms and conditions for participation in LMLL programs, including all safety guidelines.  Be sure to familiarize yourself with the Larchmont Village Ambulance Corps Injury Treatment Guidelines outlined in the document below.


Registration as a volunteer requires a number of steps (although after you've registered for your first role for a calendar year, you only need to do steps 1 and 2 for any subsequent registrations for that calendar year):

  1. Use the Correct SE Account.  All registrants 18 and over will need their own SE account (or a family account they are the owner of).  Only umpires, scorekeepers and others who are UNDER 18 may be registered by their parent using the parent's SE account.  If you are coaching your children but are not the owner of the SE account that the children were registered under, you can link your own account to your family's - see Adding Parents/Guardians.
  2. Register online for your desired LMLL role.  Use the link that was provided to you or shown on the website for the specific registration   Make sure you are logged into the proper account (see step 1 above) before starting to fill out the registration. 
  3. Complete the SEPARATE online Volunteer LL Applicatioon.  (Unless you've already done so for the calendar year you are registering for.)  When you complete your role registration (step 2), you will receive a link directing you to register for Volunteer LL Application.  This is to necessary to fulfill requirements of Little League International each year, and takes the place of the paper/PDF forms we used in prior years.  Make sure to use the same SE account you used to complete the Role registration in step 2 above.
  4. Submit a copy of a government-issued photo ID (if required).  As part of the Volunteer LL Application registration, you will be required to submit a photo ID (only if you have not done so in a prior year, or if you submitted an incomplete Photo ID as a minor, or if your legal name has changed), so have it ready.  The photo ID must show a clear picture, full first and last name, and date of birth.  Minors who do not have a gov photo ID may instead use a copy of their school photo ID, which does not need to show date of birth.
  5. Complete an online background check if you are 18 or older ONLY.   (Unless you've already done so for the calendar year you are registering for.)  When you complete your Volunteer LL Application registration, you will receive a link directing you to complete an online background check registration.  This is also necessary to fulfill requirements of Little League International.  Make sure to use the same SE account you used to complete the registrations in steps 2 and 3 above.  Registrants younger than 18 at the time of registration should NOT complete a background check.

Your registration is not complete, and you may not be considered for a role with LMLL, until all steps above have been completed.  Please note that registration confirmations you receive by email are only confirmations of receipt of your registrations.  The decision to accept your application and assign you to a team (for coaches/managers) or games (for umpires/scorers) is in LMLL's sole discretion.

SPRING REC COACHES:  After reviewing the details on registering above, click here to REGISTER AS A 2024 SPRING REC COACH.  (Note: if you want to coach more than one team, you need to complete a separate registration for each team you want to coach).

TRAVEL COACHES/MANAGERS:  After reviewing the details on registering above, click on the link sent to you or posted separately to register for Travel.  DO NOT use the Spring Rec coach registration link above.

Co-Coaching Requests (Spring Rec).  The League attempts to honor requests to coach together (especially where applicants have coached together in prior seasons), subject to division-specific limitations on the number of coaches per team. However, the League Board retains the right to deny a coaching application or a requested coach grouping for any reason, including competitive balance, prior coach conduct, and the need to balance the development of new coaches against the desire to maintain a high level of experienced coaches.

Please ensure that coaching partners you are requesting register to coach with you. Contact your intended partners and urge them to complete the application during the registration period. Only coaches who have submitted an application will be considered for a coaching position.

Thanks for signing up, and have a fun season!
