Coaching Registration, Compliance & certification

Annual Coaching Requirements

 

 

Please read below the NEW MBYLL Coach Registration, Compliance & Certification requirements and procedures.  MBYLL has partnered with SafetyOne to have a platform the Coaches, Town Administrators and MBYLL leadership can all use to track this process.  Any questions, please email Kevin Barney at

  1. ALL coaches (anyone who will assist with practice or be on the sideline at games) MUST have a 2020 MBYLL Coaching Badge. Anyone without a MBYLL Coach badge is NOT allowed on the sidelines for games as they are not Insured (putting everyone at risk should there be an incident) and they are not MBYLL Compliant (including lacking CORI and National Background Check approval).
    1. Each year, MBYLL will issue badges that are valid for that current season only to all coaches who complete Registration and Compliance.
