Saturday Secrets for Great Baseball Coaching
Many volunteer youth baseball coaches know what they are talking about when it comes to coaching baseball. Most have at least played high school ball and know enough to help youth players. What many of them lack though is the coaching techniques that get the most out of players. This is understandable, as many volunteer coaches do not have the training to know the best coaching techniques.
However, many of the best coaching techniques are the same ones that coaches use in their own line of work. Volunteer coaches should study the techniques they use at work that get results from people and employ them with kids, realizing that it is kids they are working with and not adults, of course.
6. Good leaders never forget to give the "why." Change comes hard for many, especially without a compelling reason to change.
7. Use of visuals go a long way in this day and age, as more and more kids learn from them more than from the spoken word.
8. Ease up when players show frustration. Frustration is normal but pushing at that time usually backfires with youth ball players.
