Call for applications - Head / Assistant Coach
The members of your board are working to plan for Aylmer’s 42nd baseball season. In this extraordinary time, we believe that the 2021 season will have special meaning for our young players. After several months of confinement and restrictions, we hope that many players will have the chance to reunite with their friends and take advantage of the summer period to go outside and play baseball.
It goes without saying that a sports association relies on the support of its volunteers. The ABAA has always been blessed to have so many people willing to volunteer and share their passion for baseball. To make sure the next season runs smoothly we need people who are ready to get involved and contribute for the well-being of our kids.

Managing a baseball team made easy
In order to reduce the management of a season, there will be no postponement of games or practices. Once the calendar is prepared and shared with the teams, it will be final. This way, it will be easier for parents and coaches to plan their summer. However, it will be possible for a coach to add practice needs to the team's schedule (depending on the availability of the fields).
We encourage coaches not to work alone. Each team should work as a team of 3 coaches and a manager to share the tasks.
It is important to remember that you are there for the players and that the goal is to provide a positive and rewarding sport experience. As a coach, you will not be evaluated on the number of wins, but on the pleasure of playing baseball and the commitment of your players. It is crucial that the youngsters enjoy their season and that they want to come back next year!
