Welcome Message

All,

Thank you for your interest in head/assistant coaching for the Spring 2019 season at Farragut Baseball ! The following must be read, forms completed, and emailed to your league commissioner including copying the league president for consideration for coaching this season no later than Sunday, February 17, 2019.  

Please read the following:

In addition to the forms listed below, EVERY head coach and assistant coach must complete a national background security check as this is a Knox County Parks & Rec and Farragut Baseball Inc. rule and policy. This Knox County rule went into effect Spring 2014 and is used for all school and recreational sports within the county. Many of you may have completed these in previous seasons at Farragut Baseball, through other Knox County team sports, or have this done through your employer. If so, please indicate as such in a separate email to your appropriate league commissioner and or league president. If you have done so through other Knox County sports, please be sure to provide the year/season/sport this was completed. If you have done so through your employer, please provide the proper documentation to Farragut Baseball. For all coaches and dugout parents, a comprehensive list will be provided to Knox County Parks & Rec for verification and approval prior to the beginning of practices for Spring 2018. If this is not completed, you will not be able to coach for the season or any other future season until this has been completed.

NOTE: If your last national background check was prior to Fall 2016, you will need to complete a new one as they expire after 2 years. Also, by Knox County policy, dugout coaches or “Dugout moms/dads” that are assisting the team and players on a regular basis must complete the background check as well. We are required to provide a complete list of all coaches (head, assistant, dugout coaches, etc.) to Knox County Parks & Rec for verification and these must be approved prior to your first team practice.

Effective Spring 2016: The State of Tennessee has implemented a new Sudden Cardiac Arrest Law that Knox County sports and Farragut Baseball Inc. will need to comply with. This law went into effect January 1, 2016, and affects programs the same as the Concussion Law did a few years ago. All coaches and parents must complete this form prior to the start of the season.


The following forms for coaches must be completed, signed, dated, and emailed to the appropriate league commissioner (located at the bottom of the page) and copy the league president at [email protected]

IMPORTANT NOTE for Spring 2019:

Please work with us to make sure we get these in on time so that all banners, sponsor logos, and other information can be collected and ready for the start of the season.
