WE NEED COACHES!
Fall Ball is an opportunity for cohorts of players to condition, focus on fundamentals, refine their skills and continue to grow a love for the game of baseball.
This season will look different than in years past in response to guidelines required by the City of El Segundo and County of Los Angeles. Due to field availability and stricter health protocols, ESLL will follow a cohort model for this year's Fall Ball season.
If you are interested in volunteering to manage a cohort, complete this form ASAP and no later than 10am PT on Thurs 11/5.
We have field space for up to three more cohorts this Fall Ball season, and you will be responsible for recruiting players in either Single A/AA or AAA/Majors (for example, a 9yo AAA player could be in the same cohort as their 11yo Majors sibling, if needed). We can also add waitlisted players to your cohort.
Each cohort will have one, 1.5-hour practice time slot each week and is required to designate a Safety Monitor to help enforce safety protocols and requirements.
IF YOU ARE NOT YET PART OF A COHORT and would like to be added to the waitlist: complete this form ASAP and no later than 10am PT on Thurs 11/5.
SPACE IS VERY LIMITED. At this time, we may have 5-10 spots available for waitlisted players on our current cohorts. Number of open spots could increase if we have more volunteers to manage additional cohorts.
