Venom Baseball of Illinois, LLC


Venom Baseball of Illinois is looking for a Head Coach for our 12U travel team.We are looking for baseball OR softball players who can teach effectively by educating and demonstrating. Who can motivate players to want to work hard not only at practice and games but on their own in training while on their off days. We prefer players with college level experience of play, with a solid background in not only coaching, but teaching the game (softball or baseball). Our best fits have been those who have graduated recently or have experience in coaching travel. However, it is not a deal breaker. Head Coach must fully manage the team and delegate certain tasks to assistants.Responsibilities include, but are not limited to: Recruiting players; attending tryouts; making game & tournament schedules. This means connecting directly with leagues, park districts, official finders, other teams etc. Head Coach must also create a set schedule for practices (other than winter training, which will be set up by ownership). Off season training is led by instructors from the National School of Baseball & Softball, however attendance by Head Coaches is mandatory. Instructors teach pitching, hitting & catcher position in a specific way and we do not want any of that changed. HC must learn the mechanics of these key positions and be able to reinforce them during outside practices and games. They cannot stray from how we teach.Our coaches are held to a very high standard of TEACHING the game. Winning, although certainly the objective, is not the most important goal. The improvement, growth & welfare of the player are our main objectives. We want each player to get better every day. We want them to be able to actualize their full potential. We strive for great team comradery and unity.We have several zero tolerance policies that are in a contract that must be signed. Some of those are: NO yelling, screaming, demeaning or degrading a player. No favoritism. Following our pitch count guidelines and managing a pitching staff effectively. NO screaming or arguing with opposing coaches or umpires. Protecting players at all costs. Teaching and demonstrating Sportsmanship at all times.Coach MUST live local to be able to travel to facility, practice fields, games and tournaments.A face to face interview or two will be conducted before hiring. All potential Head Coaches will be thoroughly vetted and must not only have a resume of their experience, but at least two letters of recommendations and 3 references that we can contact.
