Many parents coach youth baseball because no one else will volunteer. The team needs a coach and you decide to take on the job. It's not an easy decision, but it is the right one for you, your child and the team. You may not know all the rules, maybe you weren't a star player in high school, but you have the most important ingredient - you have a willingness to learn and create a great experience for the kids.The Coach's Guide is a summary of coaching fundamentals and practical steps to get you started. You'll learn what you can expect as a coach, and what is expected of you. You'll learn practice planning fundamentals and tips for coaching your own kid. The guide also includes a season checklist to keep you on track, a sample letter to baseball parents, and tips to help you craft your own coaching style. The Lessons guide serves as an introduction to the Coach to Coach series. From Coach to Coach guides are age-specific, and include only the essential drills appropriate for your players. The guides focus on a manageable number of practice plans for each skill category - base running, throwing, hitting, and fielding - you won't be buried with hundreds of drills, wondering which ones work best.In short, the guides include everything a new or veteran coach will need to get ready for the baseball season ahead. From Coach to Coach, I wish you a successful and enjoyable season All materials are available for download at
