Join our Coach Corps, "The Toughest Job You'll Ever Love"

As a volunteer organization, VLL relies heavily upon the parents of our players to serve in coaching roles. Although we have a tremendous stable of experienced coaches, we constantly need to resupply our coaching ranks from Tee Ball through 3A. Enthusiasm and energy are 99% of the requirements for being a great manager for our youngest players, and the league has lots of coaching resources and training opportunities to help guide you. At the non-draft levels, coaches can assemble a roster of friends, classmates, or neighbors for a fun season of baseball. Managers also also able to influence team practice schedules. Sign up to coach now or contact our Minor League Director ([email protected]) for more information.

Here's some of what parents said about their Minors coaches last spring:

"The best experience we have had in all of youth sports in Vienna in the past 8 years."

Team was "managed to be competitive but also to provide a safe space with ample opportunity for every child to fully participate and develop."

Coach "has such a great attitude towards teaching and makes the practices so fun."

"Practice was so engaging that the kids don’t even want to leave."

Coach's "calm demeanor under pressure sets an incredible example, demonstrating how players should handle the intense moments that come in sports and in life."

Fees paid by player families cover only a fraction of our total annual costs, and much of the rest comes from sponsorships. Every dollar donated by sponsors helps VLL improve and maintain our outstanding fields, purchase new equipment and uniforms, and provide financial aid to players.
