HOW DOES IT WORK?
Dugout Captain outfits each coach in the league with a membership, and takes care of all set up responsibilities – Unlimited subscriptions available! You will receive a follow up email with request for a single spreadsheet loaded with member contact info. From there, we handle the rest and send each new member a personalized email with login and password credentials.

I’M CONCERNED ABOUT COST
Don’t be. It’s FREE.
WE ALREADY OFFER A COACHING CLINIC
Good! You should, don’t change. Dugout Captain works with and supports any in-person coach’s training. This isn’t an ‘either/or’ thing… this is an ‘and’ thing. In fact, we highly encourage as much training you can muster. The beauty of DC is that we are available the other 364 days of the year that a clinic is not. And, each coach can find what they need… when they need it… online!
I love providing coaching clinics, and have worked with hundreds of youth baseball leagues since 2000. We all know the challenges of instructing coaches representing different age levels. And we all realize that most of the momentum and ideas are lost 45 minutes after the coaches leave the field. Personally, I’m always blown away that 9 in 10 coaches will show up to a coaching clinic without so much as a pen to take notes. Simply put: Dugout Captain addresses all of those clinic issues. And did I mention that it’s free?
CAN MY TEAM FAMILIES GET DC MEMBERSHIPS?
Absolutely, DC is completely free – no hidden fees. Your Dugout Captain experience is only as powerful as the coaches and families you share workout plans with anyway. Invite others to join for free, then look like a pro by sharing a workout or practice plan with them.
I DON’T HAVE TIME FOR ANOTHER ‘THING’…
Understood, life is busy. Your responsibility as a board member working with Dugout Captain is minimal. Submit this form, then respond to a couple emails. Most importantly being a single spreadsheet with coach’s names and email addresses.
Beyond that, it’s up to you to determine how involved you want to be in encouraging your coaches’ use of the tools. You volunteer your time with the board because you care about the player-family experience. Dugout Captain cares as well. We help you! Remember that, WE HELP YOU with the primary objective for why the league exists: The positive growth and development of those kids!
SERIOUSLY, WHAT’S THE CATCH?
There is no catch. We’ve had some exciting partnership changes that allow us to offer Dugout Captain subscriptions for free. Take advantage now and join the movement to make baseball fun again!
