All coaches who are on the field for Game Day must be Badged. If you are short a coach/manager, you may ask any badged coach from any team to help. Make sure you have a minimum of 3 coaches, unless you want to use a player to coach a base (a helmet is required). You must use a coach/manager for the dugout (even if you have only 1); players may coach the bases, but not the dugout. Limits by Division:
|Wiffle Ball||Unlimited - Parents can be on the field|
|T-Ball, Single A, and Cal||
1 Manager and 3 Coaches (4 total)
*1 Coach policing the Dugout at all times
*Coaches may be on the field on defense

Please keep other parents off of the field.
