Coaches - 

Thank you for volunteering to help our young ladies this upcoming Spring season! 

Volunteers are the heart of the success of our players! A positive environment is crucial to building self confidence and with that, success for our daughters. CD Softball is dedicated to providing resources to all teams of all age groups to foster positive growth for all players. 

Your volunteering to coach is a HUGE part of player development. Thank you again!

 

As part of volunteering, there are mandated checks by the Commonwealth of Pennsylvania, ASA of PA and the ESFPL which are all required in order to participate as a Coach or Assistant involved with youth sports. Below are the links to sites for those mandatory checks.

All HEAD COACHES are required to complete the background checks for the American Softball Association of Pennsylvania (ASA of PA). 

The East Shore Fast Pitch League (ESFPL) requires mandatory Concussion Awareness training for all Head Coaches.
