Coaching at all levels involves much more than making out the lineup, running fielding drills and coaching third base. It is an important and rewarding responsibility, working with young players to develop skills, improve fitness, a positive sporting attitude and a love for the game.
For those interesting in some coaching tips, please note that NSW Baseball on the following link provides some
Coaching Tips and Strategies that may assist and help develop your players.
A good idea would be to include some Warm-up and Cool-down drills and ensure the team knows what to do
before a game if the coach and/or manager are running late.
Good luck this week and most of all ensure you and the kids have fun
