One major goal the Junior Giants has set this year is to is to recruit and retain more volunteers in the program each year. In order to do so, our team has launched a new initiative called Boch’s Coaches– named after Giants Manager, Bruce Bochy.
Boch’s Coaches is an exclusive group that brings together the best coaches from across all Junior Giants Leagues.
Here’s how it works:
Coaches that complete the 3 steps below earn a special pin that identifies them as a certified Boch’s Coach:
- Complete Junior Giants University: Volunteers 101
- Attend your league’s preseason Coach & Team Parent Meeting
- Attend a Junior Giants Coaches Clinic and/or your league’s Fundamentals of Baseball Clinic
To kick off the implementation of this plan, we offered incentives if previous coaches recommitted to to the program and if they helped recruit new coaches to volunteer. In return, each volunteer was offered two tickets to a Giants game during opening week!
In addition to this offer, we also invited our top recruiters to an exclusive “Chalk Talk” with Bruce Bochy and Jon Miller in the Press Conference Room before the game. It was great to hear about Bochy’s childhood and how one coach can make all the difference to a child getting started in the game. I think it was definitely a wonderful way to thank our dedicated coaches for continuing to serve in the Junior Giants!
