Little League Coaches Registry Provides Unique Materials to Coaches and Managers
The Little League Baseball and Softball Coaches Registry was created in 2007, to help its managers and coaches improve their knowledge and learn how to be more effective teachers.
Currently, the Coaches Registry presents separate packets for Little League Baseball and Little League Softball, which include sport-specific training DVDs and reading materials.
The baseball package includes videos from the Play Ball! Series, which features tips from Major League Baseball players and managers. The Softball series offers Michele Smith’s newly-published training and practice guide along with a skills and fundamentals DVD.
In addition to instructional information, the registry provides coaches with a 2009 Rulebook, a Positive Coaching Alliance (PCA) handbook with helpful tips on how to be a better coach, What’s the Score explaining how to score a game and a scorebook. Also, members have the ability to download the latest version of the Electronic Rulebook with clips explaining frequently misinterpreted rules.
“We believe that many managers and coaches, regardless of their experience level or the level of the players they are coaching, would appreciate having ready access to additional resources that help them do a better job,” Nick Caringi, Senior Director of Operations and Education at Little League International, said. “The materials available through the Coaches Registry will help improve coaching skills, make the games of baseball and softball more fun for players, and improve the overall effectiveness of the league.”
The Coaches Registry also affords member discounts on several items purchased through the Little League online store, at wwwLittleLeagueStore.net.
