Duisburg has the world's biggest inland port, a famous university and is also a city of sports with a lot of sports facilities. You may find more information on this website:

Our club, the Duisburg Dockers, has a male baseball team, a junior baseball team and a womens fastpitch softball team. We are looking mainly for a coach for the male baseball team but it is conceivable that the coach does the training for all teams.

That would be four days per week but he has to accompany only the male baseball team during the gameday. The members of our male baseball team are aged between 18 and 37 and most of them are playing baseball for several years. They are playing in what is called in germany the "Landesliga".

The structure of the leagues in germany are Bezirksliga (lowest level), Landesliga, Verbandsliga, Regionalliga, 2. Bundesliga and 1. Bundesliga. So the team is playing on a comparatively low level. The male team has played on a higher level (Verbandsliga) in the years before but in the last few years they had no coach.

But nevertheless the guys are motivated and have fun in playing. The junior team is in i's first year and the boys and three girls are aged between 8 and 14. Our softball team is playing for about seven years and the girls are aged between 17 and 41.

We are interested in a coach for all three teams but we would prefer a player/coach who plays in the male baseball team. We don't have peferences on age.

As you can see this club is determined to find a Championship style coach. If that coach is you, get signed up for a membership today and perhaps you are on a plane tomarrow to Germany.
