"A good coach can change a game. A great coach can change a life."  -- John Wooden  

Most who experience success, in any form, can point back to someone over the course of life who played a pivotal role in their development. That's because a great coach does more than help us win games.  They inspire, motivate, and challenge us to be at our very best.  

We know volunteers are the lifeline of our league.  Coaching Youth Sports can be a rewarding experience. Our goal is to help make coaching baseball as easy as possible, and fun for everyone involved.

There are 5 steps to become a Coach for West Boca Youth Baseball.

  1. First, register as a Coach/Manager online at westbocayouthbaseball.org (every season)
  2. Once you are assigned as a coach to a team you will then have the ability to log back into the registration system and "register" for your background check. (2 years)
  3. After your background check is completed you will be provided the link to the Abuse prevention course https://safetysystem.abusepreventionsystems.com/ (2 years)
