How are managers selected?
LCB uses many criteria for selecting managers. We start with the fact that the manager is the single-most important individual in the organization since he or she is directly responsible for the safety and enjoyment of the players and for the proper instruction of the game of baseball. Managers are most often parents of a player or players on their team, but who also understand their role as being responsible for and the leader of the team. We are fortunate to have many managers who are veterans of our organization, having started with their children since Tee Ball. Manager candidates must be in good-standing with the organization and display leadership qualities, knowledge of the game, personality and willingness to lead their team in accordance with the mission of Lakeland City Baseball. Once it has been determined that a manager-candidate meets these criteria, their name is submitted to the league president. The league president, at his or her discretion, then presents the candidate's name to the board of directors for approval. Volunteers, including managers and coaches, do not have tenure, and prior service does not guarantee re-appointment.
Are background checks performed on managers?
Yes, and more. All managers, coaches, board members, Team Moms, umpires, general volunteers and anyone else who would have repetitive contact with players are required to pass multiple background checks. These persons must complete a volunteer application, provide a copy of their driver license or other government-issued picture ID, and agree in writing to have background checks performed and abide by the regulations governing volunteers to the league.
How do I contact my team's manager?
After your player is selected to a team, his or her manager will be contacting you to introduce themselves and should provide you with their contact information. Please record this information for use during the season. In addition, most managers can be contacted by e-mail through this website. Please click on Teams, go to your specific team and select the "Contact" link next to the manager's name.
