LittleLeagueCoach.org: Great Coaching Starts Here … Free!!!

By Jamie Joy, Manager of Operations

During my first season coaching Little League, I knew the game of baseball, but I didn’t know the proper way to convey the message. I wasn’t even sure if the message I was giving was current or what the players wanted to hear.

Coaching 16-18 year-old Big League baseball, I felt a little intimidated. So I can relate to many first-time coaches and managers. I learned by listening, and observing many coaches. Over time I came into my own, but I always wished I had access to something that could accelerate my learning curve and expand my coaching knowledge.

For the last two seasons, many Little League managers have utilized the Coach Resource Center by going to LittleLeaguecoach.org. There you find numerous tips from planning a practice, drills, and safety, but did you know there’s a new section on pitching education. There you will gain essential knowledge to help make pitchers from your team and league better.

Hone your coaching knowledge by taking advantage of this wonderful resource. Below is a link to “Phases of the delivery.” Take a look and contact you league to find out how you can take advantage of this great resource.
