Coaches Orientation and Meeting Set for March 3-4

All head coach applicants and those interested in being assistant coaches should attend this important pre-season meeting. In light of COVID-19 and local guidelines, we are splitting these sessions into three different meetings to reduce the participation size of each meeting. So, the schedule is as follows for the 2021 Spring Season and all sessions are set to take place at Jenn Park, 10450 East 63rd Street in Lawrence:

  • 8U, 10U, 12U Softball | Wednesday, March 3 from 7-9 p.m.
  • Tee Ball, Junior Rookie and Rookie | Thursday, March 4 from 6-7:30 p.m.
  • Minor and Super Major | Thursday, March 4 from 8-9:30 p.m.
  • Please note: Challenger, Junior/Senior Baseball and 14U/16U Softball softball coaches need not attend this specific meeting

We take player development and enjoying the experience seriously at OYO. So, here are important details for all head coach and assistant coach candidates for our 2021 Spring Season.


For those who have attended in the past, this meeting will be facilitated differently, especially in the content shared and the impact you have on the eventual team development. In short, there are some very important new guidelines and protocols for coaches to follow and participation is requested of all head coaches.

In addition, all assistant coaches are encouraged to attend and participate in our annual Coaches’ Orientation and Player Selection/Ranking. At OYO, we do not conduct an actual player draft, rather commissioners will use feedback from this meeting and a formula per our team development guidelines to construct teams following the conclusion of the meetng.
