Twins Looking to Expand in 2015, Coaches Needed

The Indiana Twins will have a 13u, 14u, 15u and 17u team in 2015. Those are all existing Twins teams that will be moving forward with the organization next year. The Twins would also love to expand to other ages for 2015. Specifically, if you are interested in coaching 9u, 10u, 11u, 12u or 16u for the 2015 season, please fill out the coaching registration form using the link at the top of the home page called “Become a Twins Coach”. Interviews for these positions will begin in mid-July.

Please keep in mind that the Twins don’t import entire teams in to our program. The Twins hold a public tryout for each team each year. Maintaining the integrity of the tryout is extremely important.

Fathers that become head coaches DO guarantee their son a place on the team. However, we are very aware of the practice of father’s attempting to become coaches solely for that reason. If your intention for coaching is so that your son can play SS, Pitch and bat 3rd in the lineup regardless of whether he should be or not, please don’t register. We want coaches that take the responsibility of being a coach very seriously.

It will be mandatory that future Twins coaches are determined to learning the Twins program and attending and participating in the Twins Camp off-season program. That program not only trains our players, but is used as a learning environment for the coaches as well. If you are a coach that has everything figured out and doesn’t have much else to learn than the Twins probably aren’t the right organization for you.

A Twins coach must be open minded to new and progressive ways of doing things. We try to stay on the cutting edge with every aspect of what we teach. The way something was taught yesterday or today might actually have a better way of being taught tomorrow based on new information or video analysis. A coach that is still teaching what he was taught in high school or college 15-20 years ago and has no desire to hear new information and change accordingly probably shouldn’t apply.

Our coaches are the single most important piece of the success of our program, so we MUST find the right ones to advance the organization forward. We aren’t for everyone, but if you think you are a good fit after reading the above info, we’d love to hear from you and potentially make you part of our program.

If you are interested in being a coach and don’t have a son involved, the Twins do offer a stipend for all non-Dad coaches.
