Summer All Stars Coach Application OPEN!
If interested, please submit by March 26thUpdated Sunday March 11, 2018 by Kris Marceca.
While we are all comtemplating the great Spring weather, its also time to start thinking about the Summer All Star season! The application for COACHES is now open!
Calling all Coaches!! We need you to help coach the 2018 Summer All Stars!
The AGSA is pleased to announce that we will be running a Summer All Star (SAS) program for the summer of 2017. We are open to have teams at 8U, 10U and 12U levels for 2018 and depending upon interest, we may add an older level team. The decision on how many teams we will have for each age group depends upon: 1) The availability of appropriate quality coaches; 2) Sufficient interest in participation; 3) Adequate participation in key skills positions (pitcher and catcher) that could allow the team to be competitive at the All Star level. Coaches for the Spirit SAS program DO NOT NEED TO BE CURRENT AGSA COACHES BUT MUST PASS A BACKGROUND CHECK AS PART OF THEIR APPLICATION.
The concept of this program is to allow girls who want to improve their softball skills; play at a more competitive level and have a taste of the travel/tournament programs to have a chance to do that.
This is the 5th year of this popular program and many of the former SAS players have shown up on travel rosters within the Sage as well as beyond. Some have been seen on various high school JV and Varsity teams!
This program depends upon having dedicated coaches who want to see girls improve their skills in a positive and fun setting. We hope to once again be able to hire some additional help to provide some skills coaching for hitting, catching, fielding and game management. The Spirit SAS teams will once again be supported by the AGSA in terms of handling all rostering and tournament entries. We are seeking coaches who have experience in managing a team and teaching proper softball skills and techniques.
If you are at all interested in coaching this season, please fill out the coach application via the agsafastpitch.com registration system. Coach applications will be accepted until March 19th. Coaches will be announced the following week. Tryouts are to be held . Tryouts will once again be assistedd by the AGSA and Spirit coaches will be asked to assist, but not run the tryouts. Feedback will also be given by AGSA and Sage representatives who help to manage the tryouts.
