Preference will be given to applicants who are available to coach both the spring (March-May) and summer (May-August) seasons. Applications will be accepted online only, and must include a coaching résumé (in PDF format), with three references. Click here to apply.

Recreational league coaches

All recreational league teams are coached by volunteers. Parents may indicate their interest in serving as a head or assistant coach during the player registration process.

Coaches are encouraged to organize at least two contacts (practices, games) per week, using AGSA's online field scheduling tool. Batting helmets, bats, balls, catcher equipment and scorebooks will be provided by the league.

Rosters will be distributed during a coaches meeting in late March/early April; coaches are responsible for contacting their teams.

New for 2019: In order to standardize the skills and methods being taught in our program, all coaches will be expected to attend a short coaching clinic scheduled for late March/early April. In addition, Central Iowa Rec League (CIRL) will be holding a mandatory coaches meeting in early April; a representative from each team must be present for one of the scheduled dates. No exceptions. 

Background checks are required for all coaches and volunteers.
