Can I Coach a team?


Being a Coach requires organizational skills, some baseball or softball acumen,
and most importantly, a genuine interest in being around, and mentoring, children.

To be considered for any Coach position, you must first complete a background check.
It is imperative that all managerial candidates be screened as the league complies with national requirements and Massachusetts State Laws on background checks for all persons involved with players.

please return via postal mail only

The process of selecting coaching staff is not a popularity contest and no extra credit is automatically granted for seniority. Remember, ALL coaching positions are for one year only.  Each year, if a person wishes to coach, the same selection procedure must be equally applied to all candidates.

All appointments are subject to the approval of the Board of Directors.

In addition to acting as Coach during the spring season, you are automatically considered part of the leagues General Membership, whereby you're granted the right to vote at our Annual Meeting which elects the new Board of Directors. This meeting is usually held in October.

Our league wishes to put forth the very best product possible and to benefit our community’s children who choose spring baseball/softball.

To achieve this goal we need volunteers !!

Northampton Baseball & Softball could not function without the commitment of its volunteers, please consider joining our great baseball and softball community.


If you have experience in umpiring or are interested in umpiring within the program, THEN WE WANT YOU !!

Ideally, interested individuals are licensed/trained umpires. However the league organizes umpire training clinics each spring for those rookie umpires.

Former players who may now play for the High School baseball or softball teams are highly encouraged to umpire.

All potential candidates must complete these two forms each season:

  • You must complete the CORI/VOLUNTEER FORMS - these allow the league to perform all necessary background checks on an individual before being allowed to umpire games
  •  TAX FORM W9 must be completed. All umpires earning $600 or more in a given year will be issued a 1099 Miscellaneous Income form for tax reporting purposes.

Please complete both forms and mail to us:
