Managers and Coaches
Managers and coaches are all volunteers in the Aiea Little League. They work on the goal of training Little Leaguers in the fundamentals of teamwork, good sportsmanship and discipline.
It is not enough that candidates for this important role have previous experience in the game, but they must also possess leadership ability and the know-how to work with young children.
The Little League® manager and coach must be leaders. All must recognize that they hold a position of trust and responsibility in a program that deals with a sensitive and formative period of a child’s development.
It is required that the manager and coach have understanding, patience and the capacity to work with children. The manager and coach should be able to inspire respect. Above all else, managers and coaches must realize that they are helping to shape the physical, mental and emotional development of young people.
The Little League manager must be something more than just a teacher. Knowledge of the game is essential but it is not the only badge of a Little League coach or manager.
