Coaching and Volunteer Opportunities

Help Wanted

The success of the MSO Softball Program rests with the many volunteers who help out in a variety of ways.  Adult volunteers are needed for all teams to serve as coaches, assistant coaches and team managers.  If you are willing and able, please sign up when you register your child!

PARENT OF A NEW PLAYER?  Don’t let inexperience keep you off the field.  MANY VOLUNTEERS are needed in coaching and supporting roles for our T-Ball and Rookie Leagues (the more the merrier)!  MSO Softball will offer coaches’ training and instruction to support all our new and returning coaches.

If you have any questions, please come to one of the registration sessions - coaches will be on hand to describe the program in detail.

HEAD COACH – The Head Coach has the primary responsibility of dealing with players and parents.  He/she has final decision in all softball matters.  Coaching volunteers are required to attend the Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. Clinic (one time only).  Information on the Rutgers’ clinic dates and times will be posted in the Coaches' Corner section once it is available.
