Team looking for Non playing coach
Well here's an unusal request but here goes. We are looking for someone who enjoys coaching and knows how to win. We have a great bunch of players on our team and enjoy being competitive in tournaments. Currently, we have a playing coach and prefer to have a non-playing coach. We go to 10-11 tournaments during the year. So, if you or you know of someone that may be interested, contact me at mc4softball@gmail.com.

I forgot to say that we are based out of Georgia and we are a 60+ AAA team.

With a little tweaking and a couple of players, this could be an very good 60+AAA team.

Allthough some of you probably already know the team, we would like the team name to remain annonymous for now. Hombre's comments are correct. Team did well in the Nationals. However, are losing a few good players due to moving up to 65+ teams. At this time that we are adding a few new players, we would like to include a non-playing coach that knows how to win and put the right players on the field. At the same time players want a coach that knows how to fill a team and win. If you are interested, we can discuss further off line. Thanks for all the views and maybe someone is really interested. If so, you can contact either mc4softball@gmail.com or gasftball@yahoo.com. As a non-playing coach you can help make the tweaks needed.

That is personal preference it the Mgr wants to just manage of play as well. Some do both quite well. If you loosing players why not? Team I'll be with this year is splitting up into 65\70's, but both men who are taking on the mgr roles do good jobs at it.
What bothers me is both having to stay AAA. Neither should be. As one team they were marginal at best there.
This is the time of year most everyone is restructuring in some way and a few others should seriously think about it.

Since no one responded to an annonymous post, maybe if they knew the team name someone may be interested since it is a good team. Just my opinion.

Some suggest knowing the team name will help a qualified coach volunteer for the job. Let's see if someone will volunteer now that they know our team name is T.A.G. :-) We finished 3rd in the 60+ AAA Nationals. Once again contact me at mc4softball@gmail.com, if interested. We have players from TN, AL, GA.

Why don't you recruit Gary 19. He seems to have
"unbelieveable" knowledge of the game/rules used in senior softball. He could be a part of the senior game and wouldn't have to swing a senior bat. I am sure his insight and knowledge would take your team to a level you never dreamed of.

Southpaw: I don't know as I will not be with them next year so I don't know who the new players are.

Southpaw: If you want to throw darts start your own message. I intended my message to only be a request for legitimate responses to our request. P. S. We have never used your team as a farm club. That would mean all your players would be eligible to play for us. Of those that originally played on your team approached us. We Do Not and Will Not approach another team's players. Not trying to be ugly just making sure the facts are straight so nobody gets a misunderstnding from your comment.

Hey How much are you willing to pay? I demand 10K a weeknd plus all expenses paid and I coach your high caliber team. I am confused how hard is to make a line up and let people play, if you don't hit you sit. Simple to me, that was my philosophy when I used to coach. Call my agent and lets get deal done. LOL

PR Ninja out.

Should have had at least the location mentioned at the start. Majority of players want the win. Few only complain about the game. Too far for consideration, now that info is up. Look local in areas you play. Maybe an old timer who still goes to games.

taits, good suggestion. I played a couple of years for a non-playing coach. He used to be a top level player, but illness resulted in him not being able to play. He knew the game well, coached well, was well-liked and respected by the players, and twice he led teams to the national championship—sadly, not one I was on. His physical condition became bad enough that he can no longer even coach, but he was quite an asset. There are probably older guys in every area of the country who might enjoy a chance to be competitive again, even if age or infirmity doesn't allow them to actively play.

Might place an ad in a couple papers since your play area covers many states. Thrifty Nickel is pretty good and I believe back there.
