Become a Select Coach

Anyone can apply to become a select coach. The coach selection process involves several stages designed to identify and select the best candidates for the coaching positions. Overall, the process is lead by the Vice-President – Select Softball and supported by the other executives. Shortlisted candidates may undergo interviews. These interviews assess not only technical qualifications but also cultural fit and interpersonal skills. On occasion, Candidates may be asked to complete assessments or tests to demonstrate their abilities.

Throughout each step, communication and transparency are practiced to ensure a positive experience for both candidates and the league.
