Suffern Little League expects nothing but the best from our managers and coaches. Given the important role that these individuals play in the development and leadership of youth in the Suffern Little League program, much care is used in the review, vetting, and selection of managers and coaches for Suffern teams. While not all inclusive, the League has these base expectations for all managers and coaches.
