IMPORTANT MEETING FOR ALL VOLUNTEER HOUSE LEAGUE AND SELECT COACHES AT THE BOB ABATE COMMUNITY CENTRE TO DISCUSS ‘COACHES CODE OF CONDUCT’ FOR THE UPCOMING 2015 SEASON
The Toronto Playgrounds Baseball Committee will be holding a Coaches Meeting on Thursday, March 26 from 7:15 p.m. to 8:15 p.m. at the Bob Abate Community and Recreation Centre (485 Montrose Avenue, located on the east side of the street just south of Bloor and across the road from Christie Pits).
This important meeting is intended for everyone who is wishing to be involved in on-field coaching with our baseball program during the 2015 season.
The Committee will be introducing a formal ‘Coaches Code of Conduct’ document this season. Anyone wishing to be involved in coaching games and/or practices this season will have to sign a copy and return it to us in order to be considered a formal coach.
In addition, we will be discussing the expectations surrounding coaching, the procedures we expect people to follow, the training opportunities that our league will be providing to you, and members from our baseball committee will be on hand to answer any questions any of you have regarding our league.
Everyone, whether you’ve coached with us before or are brand new, are asked to attend the meeting and must sign and return a copy of Code of Conduct. The Committee will be posting details of the ‘Coaches Code of Conduct’ on the website and will also be emailing copies of the code of conduct to all coaches ahead of the meeting. We kindly ask all coaches to look through it and hopefully bring it with you signed to the meeting.
If there are any coaches who are absolutely unable to attend the scheduled coaches meeting at this time, please let us know ASAP by return e-mail at [email protected]. The Committee will, if necessary, schedule an additional session; but it would be great to have as many of you out together on March 26 because it’s also a great way for you to meet other coaches in other divisions who you might not see on the field much during the season.
All house league coaches are advised will still be having our division-specific coaching meetings during mid-April, at which time we’ll be sorting out dates and times for practices during the pre-season period of early May to the Victoria Day weekend (no practices on the long weekend, don’t worry).
If you have any questions, please contact us at [email protected].
