why should I coach baseball at summer camp?

Baseball coaching in Canada is an incredibly rewarding experience. You’ll spend your days out in the sun, coaching campers from those who’ve never picked up a bat before to those who play regularly in their local Little League teams.

If you have experience playing baseball, great! If not, other sports like cricket, rounders, and softball are similar, meaning you can transfer your knowledge to help campers grow and develop into great baseball players.

what does a baseball coach do at summer camp?

As a baseball coach, your days can vary. One day, you could be helping youngsters to hit their first baseball, and the next you could be organising an intercamp tournament with other camps in the area, allowing opportunities for fun and friendly competition.

Baseball is one of the most popular activities at summer camp, and so you will be responsible alongside your team for leading 5 or 6 activity periods per day. This includes coaching the basic skills and drills to planning interactive games to keep campers energised and interested.

What if I don't have any qualifications?

Short answer - it might not be a problem. For most activities, you won't need any particular qualifications to teach your activity at camp. For others, we may be able to provide training before camp starts - you'll still need a decent amount of experience in your activity, but we'll make sure you're ready before the campers start arriving. The best thing to do is apply for the role you want, and if it doesn't work out, you may be able to lock down a similar role. Whatever you end up doing, you'll still be fully trained for camp!

Do I still get days off?

Of course! Everyone needs time to recharge their batteries after an exciting but hectic week at camp, as well as the opportunity to explore the local area and further afield. Most camps will give you a 24 hour block of free time every week, whilst some others provide 2-4 days off in a row every few weeks.

Do I need to bring equipment?

Some camps will want you to bring equipment for certain activities, but this will likely only be in the form of clothes and personal gear, but they’ll let you know this once you’re hired. Most often, you won’t have to bring any specialist equipment, with Canadian summer camps being equipped with state of the art facilities to develop the campers’ skills, as well as yours.
