Please take a few minutes to fill out the registration form to manage a team at SKELL. Please let us know what you have to bring to our league as a manager and why you would like to manage a team at SKELL.
The Little League® manager must be a leader. 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 have understanding, patience and the capacity to work with children. The manager should be able to inspire respect. Above all else, managers 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 manager.
As a team manager, you will also be responsible to schedule your practices, from the date and locations given by the league. The manager will communicate with your divisional General Manager if there are questions regarding local league rules or other Little League rules. They will need to follow the weekly rotation of the field maintenance schedule and communicate with the divisional GM, if there are scheduling concerns. The manager will designate two coaches to work with them and will need to have a team parent to communicate information to the team. During the games only the manager will be the communication with umpires. Additional concerns or problems will be brought to the SKELL President and Vice President.
If you would like to assist a team and help as a coach, please notify the manager of your child's team after your team has been formed

Curt Tippery, our Coaching Coordinator, is going to offer a few classes regarding the building blocks of baseball, breaking down components of the game for the players of SKELL.
For Players (Minor, Major, Junior & Senior): These classes are for players who are serious about baseball and digging deep into the fundamentals of baseball.
Managers (ALL DIVISIONS): We would like to encourage our managers and coaches to attend the classes, to take notes and observe the instructions and drills. Managers, please talk to your players who are serious about baseball.
From Coach Curt, regarding the information of the classes. PLEASE READ
These classes are information sharing classes, and not practices or clinics. It will be up to the players and coaches to implement this info into their own practice regimens. I'm going to share the foundation building blocks that I teach to show kids how to turn themselves into solid, confident baseball players. They will be fast paced and a lot will be covered in a short amount of time, so distractions to the class aren't gonna fly. All this stuff works together and translates to any level of ball. Throwing class is highly recommended before pitching class.
If you have a player who is interested in the Pitching class, they need to attend the throwing class first. If the players are unable to focus during the class, they will be asked to step off the field.
We understand this is short notice for these fundamental classes, this has been brain storming for a little while and time has flown by too quickly.
In the future, we plan to offer more classes, but at this time here are the current classes.
Please reach out to Curt Tippery if you have additional questions.
