Volunteer to be a coach or team manager

The success of the SOM Baseball program rests with the many volunteers who help out in a variety of ways. Adult volunteers are needed for all teams to serve as coaches, assistant coaches and team managers.

Parent of a new player? Don’t let inexperience keep you off the field! Volunteers are especially needed in coaching and supporting roles for our T-Ball and Rookie Leagues (the more the merrier)! We offer coaches’ training and instruction to support all our new and returning coaches.

Our volunteer coaches are required to attend a Rutgers S.A.F.E.T.Y. Clinic, a coaching certification course (one time only) and undergo a background check.

If you are willing and able, watch our home page and social media to learn when baseball registration begins. Volunteers will use the South Orange Recreation registration website to sign up as volunteers for the spring season.

If you are interested but unsure of the demands on time or skills required to volunteer, contact Taylor Umlauf, tumlauf@gmail.com or Phil Kouyoumdjian, philykou@gmail.com
