Baseball Coaching Rules to Manage Kids' Attention, Expectations, Burnout, and more

Patience - 3 Second rule - Before yelling what kids should have done in a specific situation, this slight pause allows coaches to gather their emotions and thoughts before informing kids where they went wrong. Being too quick on the draw may lead to actions and words that coaches regret later.

Attention - 3 Minute Rule Keep talks to 3 minutes or less, which is about the limit of attention span for young players. Breaking talks into smaller segments, with activity in between, works much better.
