Coaching Requirements

As a non-profit organization, the Andover Girls Softball League relies on parent volunteers to serve as head and assistant coaches at all levels. If you are interested in helping as a coach, please contact the appropriate division coordinator (contact information can be found at this link).

All coaches and AGSL personnel who interact with the players directly must complete several processes to be allowed to coach with AGSL.


1.) Annual CORI review

Please contact your age group coordinator or the in-town coordinator to complete this process. You will need to complete the CORI Form along with a copy of the front of your driver’s license.

If you have been CORI’d by another group in town, you still need to be CORI’d by AGSL. 

If you completed a CORI form for AGSL last year, you will still need to complete one this year.

3.) Safesport Certification

Please complete the Safesport requirements per the USA Softball Massachusetts site.

There is a Safesport tab at the bottom of their home page after you’ve logged in.

This is free. If you are asked to pay, please contact us and we will assist.

Note: if you’ve done this for another league, please make sure you have linked your account with USA Softball so they have the previous records

After you have completed the USA Softball Massachusetts registration and the Background Check, please send the In-Town Coordinator your USA Softball Membership # so we can record it on our master list. Please also let the In-Town Coordinator know when you have completed the SafeSport certification.
