Coach Selection Process

Thinking of managing or helping to coach your child's team?

Team managers (also know as the head coach) may be asked to participate in an interview with the league's manager selection committee. The league President nominates a slate of team managers upon which the Board of Directors votes. Team managers will be notified of their selection. Upon notification, managers and coaches will be required to participate in a coaching training session.  Managers and coaches returning to the league are required to resubmit all information every season; no position is guaranteed and no manager or coach is "tenured."

Coaches Registration

Those interested in coaching or managing a baseball or softball team for the 2021 Mukilteo Little League season MUST register online through Stack Sports.  PLEASE REGISTER BY FEBRUARY 28, 2021.  It is desirable that each team have a Team Manager, who serves as the head coach, and two Assistant Managers to assist with practices and games.  Any parent volunteer who plans to umpire games or assist with practices should register as a Parent Volunteer through Stack Sports.

Mandatory Background Checks

All coaches and volunteers must complete a background check performed by JDP through Little League.  After you register, you will be sent a link to complete the background check.  Please complete this process timely so we can add you to a team.  You will not be assigned to a team until your registration and background check is completed.  For more information see: Background Check Information on Little League's website. 


Resources for Mukilteo Little League Coaches

Little League Coach Resource Center

Little League International recognizes and appreciates the challenges that come with being a Little League manager or coach, so it has developed a free on-line coaching resource that Little League managers and coaches can turn to for reference, education, or to stay current with the latest drills and coaching techniques such as:

  • Conducting a Tee-Ball Program A-Z
  • Baseball and Softball
  • Season Planning
  • Parental Involvement
  • Teaching Skills
  • Drills and Activities

Seattle Mariners Video Series

Because the pandemic doesn’t allow for in-person clinics, the Seattle Mariners have put together a FREE video series.  The series content is broken up into 9 segments, totaling about 35 minutes.  Coaches can watch the entire series, one at a time, or revisit a particular segment as an ongoing resource.   Here is the link to the video series: Mariners Grand Slam Camp youth coaching instruction series - YouTube

Step 1: Identify a Field/Date/Time to reschedule your game

  • TeeBall, Rookie, Farm divisions: Teams should look to use their practice fields for rescheduled games.
  • Minor, Major and Teenage divisions: The authoritative field use schedule is online on the Mukilteo Little League website. You can ether browse by day or download the scheduled into an excel spreadsheet to identify fields/times. Website Link -> Full Field Usage Schedule

Step 2: Email the Mukilteo League Scheduler ([email protected] or [email protected] ) with your re-scheduling request. Please clearly identify the games you are rescheduling (ex. Minors Cubs Vs Dodgers 4/9 Game, reschedule to 4/16 @ 11:15AM on Complex Field 3). Once the scheduler has moved your game you will get a confirmation email.
