If you are an adult who enjoys mentoring kids, would like to give back to the community and loves the game of baseball, please consider becoming a manager for a SCLL team. We need managers for every division from Tee Ball through Intermediate. You do not have to be a parent of a Little League player to manage a team.
Managing youth baseball can be an awesome, rewarding experience. SCLL provides a lot of support for managers and coaches through clinics, seminars, mentoring and other resources. Experience is not necessary and you do not have to be a parent of a Little League player to manage a team. Please consider volunteering your time to give back to our youth and the community.
To start the process:
Tee Ball, Farm, and A divisions -- When you are registering your player, please indicate your interest as a manager during the volunteer sign-up part of the registration process. A division rep will follow up with everyone who is interested. Managers for Tee Ball, Farm and A do not need to complete the Manager Interest Form or participate in player evaluations.
AA, AAA, Majors and Intermediate divisions -- Manager interest forms are required for new and returning managers for AA, AAA, Majors and Intermediate ONLY. Please make a copy or print out the Manager Interest Form below and return the completed application no later than December 1st. Completed forms can be emailed to [email protected] (preferred) or mailed to SCLL at PO Box 1723, Santa Cruz, CA 95061.
Interviews by the Manager Selection Committee will take place in mid-December. You will be notified of the date and time for your interview. Managers and coaches, like all volunteers in Little League, are required to complete a background check. Following the interviews, the Manager Selection Committee will present its recommendations to the SCLL Board of Directors and candidates will be notified.
Manager applications due: December 1st
Manager interviews: December 11th - December 14th

Please note: We don’t know how many managers we will need each year until player registration is near completion. Remember that even if you are registered and approved as a manager, that does not mean that you are guaranteed to get a team.
