AAU Head Coach and Assistant Coach
Jobs available at the BBC
The Braintree Baseball Club is looking for more coaches to fill their staff. We have growing programs that are requiring more coaches, i.e. Fall Ball coaches both head and assistant coaches, and AAU coaches both head and assistant coaches. We are looking for coaches that are familiar with the sport and have had previous experience coaching. We need coaches that are energetic and enthusiastic about baseball. This is a part-time position and the hours are primarily in the evening and on weekends, we do need someone that can be flexible. Our coaches will continue to uphold our programs philosophies and the mission of the Braintree Baseball Club. The coaches will establish goals with our athletes and teams and work throughout the season with the player to accomplish these goals.
The head coaches do have more responsibilities than the assistant coaches and the responsibilities will vary between positions.
