Aaron Izaryk is the head coach of Bridgton Academy Baseball and the General Manager of the Sanford Mainers.
Aaron Izaryk came on as the Head Coach of Bridgton Academy baseball in 2010. Since then he has transformed Bridgton into the premiere prep baseball program in New England. With two NECBA Championships, six playoff appearances, and countless players placed in top-level collegiate baseball programs, Izaryk has changed the culture of baseball at Bridgton Academy. His efforts were also instrumental in the construction of our new, Division I-level baseball complex on the Bridgton Academy campus.
In addition to his duties as Head Baseball Coach, Izaryk also the Academy’s Director of Athletics and Athletic Recruitment, where he oversees the overall vision and programming of all athletic teams. Previous to that, he was Director of College Counseling, where he guided many of our young men through the college selection process, as well as helping to clear the sometimes murky waters of the NCAA Clearinghouse.
Outside of the Academy, Izaryk has been the Manager of the NECBL’s Sanford Mainers for seven summers, notching seven playoff appearances, 150 wins, a trip to the NECBL finals in 2014 and the 2015 Joel Cooney NECBL Manager of the Year award. Throughout his time at Bridgton Academy and the Mainers, over 50 of Izaryk’s players have been selected in the Major League Draft.
Izaryk lives on the Bridgton Academy campus with his wife, Jamie, son, Parker and their two dogs. He is a devout Toronto Maple Leafs devotee, so be gentle if you ever have the chance to meet him.
