Mentorship Program

One of our goals this year was to create a mentorship program between our older kids (E League) and our younger kids (Coach Pitch). We have successfully begun our mentorship program, but we are looking for a few more mentors.

The program aims to assign 1-2 mentors per team. These mentors will be under the supervision of the head coach and league president.   

If your child is an E-league player, or E-League age eligible, but not playing baseball with CFABA, and is interested in being a mentor for a Coach Pitch team, please complete the application below and a  CFABA staff member will  contact you. 

If you need service hours, want to spend time outside, love kids, love teaching and want to make a real difference, consider signing up today!

ALL Mentors will be required to complete Concussion Awareness training. This is provided for free through several sources, CFABA recommends either the National Federation of High Schools or the Center for Disease Control programs. 


Any Mentors ages 18 and over will be required to pass a background check through USA Baseball.

Registration Listing

2023 Mentorship Program

This application is for those 15-18 year olds who are interested in serving as a mentor with Cuyahoga Falls Amateur Baseball Association. Mentors will be assigned to a Coach Pitch team, will be under the direct supervision of the head coach, and assist the coaches in teaching and developing baseball skills in players ages 6-8. Mentors will be considered part of the team and will attend practices and games and assist the coaching staff.

Often, younger players will listen to teens and will gravitate to those who show an interest in them. Mentors are encouraged to engage with players in a positive manner and help them understand that learning to play the game is a process and we value effort and hard work.

Mentors are required to complete state mandated concussion training, which is provided for free through NFHS or the CDC. Mentors who are 18 years of age will also be required to complete a background check. CFABA can approve volunteer hours for graduation.
