Coaches checklist

Spring Coaches Checklist

Thank you for volunteering! 

Things that need to be completed.


  • If you haven’t already, please register to coach online at www.destrehanboosterclub.com so we can get your information.  If you have selected an assistant coach, please also have that person register online.



  • The boosterclub provides for two coaches shirts.  If you have more than one assistant then they will have to pay for their own shirt. The cost is $20 per shirt. If you do not need a shirt, please let me know ASAP.


  • We are ordering uniforms ASAP.  Please confirm all player sizes with parents ASAP.  This is a very important step to assure there are no uniform issues.


  • Ages 5-6 and 7-8 Boys and Girls you can practice at the Ormond Park, Harry Hurst, or Red Church Fields.  To schedule your practice times, please contact Roy at roy@allstarpremierhomes.com


  • Boys ages 9 and up you will practice at the East and Westbank Bridge Parks.  You must contact the recreation department every Thursday starting at 9:00am to schedule for the following week.  Practices are scheduled at first come, first serve. Their number is 985-783-5090.  


  • Once you have scheduled your first practice, please contact ALL players as soon as possible.  The first contact can be made through email or phone call with the information listed on the roster.  NOTE* If you send an email, please make sure you have heard back from everyone!  It is NOT likely everyone received the email, so you may have to make calls to ensure you have informed everyone about practice.


  • Setting up communication:  It is important to find the easiest way to get information about your team to parents.  A few ways to do that is as follows:
  • You can set up 1 or 2 group texts up to 10 people.  Some people cannot send to more than 10 people due to their phone service, so it is not recommended to have more than 10 people in a group.
  • You can set up a group on an app.  We recommend the Group Me App.  It is super easy and everyone can use it.  You would just need to talk to parents about downloading the app and accepting the group.
  • You can set up an email group.  Just be aware that some people may not check their emails as often as their text messages.



  • Can call recreation department to get practice equipment. 985-783-5090


  • The Booster Club raises its own money for equipment, trophies, improvements to the fields, coaches shirts, and other things to help the children of Destrehan. We are not an extension of the St. Charles Parish Recreation, therefore, we are not paid any money from the parish government.  The only money that comes in are registration fees to buy uniforms.  With that said, we do two things to raise money during the baseball/softball season.  First, we ask that all Destrehan teams find a Jersey Sponsor.  This is a $250 sponsorship to have the company name printed on the back of the team’s jersey. {If a team can not find sponsor, you can raise money or each player can pay $25 to put team name or individual names on back. }  We ask that you please get that into us as soon as you can so we can order uniforms as soon as possible.  Second, we offer seasonal sponsors on our new LED sign. We post the company Logo, up to 8 sponsors, on our rotating screen throughout the season for 4 months.  The cost is $250.00. We ask that you mention this to your parents in case any are business owners and would like to be a baseball/softball sponsor. 


  • If you are interested in putting your name in to coach All Stars for the parish, you must do that now!  Go visit the recreation department to submit your application ASAP.


  • The recreation department will have a Coaches Meeting to go over all rules and procedures for your age group.  It is highly suggested that you write down questions prior to this meeting and ask as many of them as possible to make sure that all coaches in your age group are on the same page as far as the rules.  Also it is suggested to write down any responses you get back from the recreation department in case you have any problems in a game. 


  • From this point on, your phone number will be added to our Coach Group on the app GroupMe.  You are responsible for getting this app to stay up to date on all information, including schedule changes and uniform information.  You must download the app, or you will not receive all the information that comes through on the group.
