No one at any level of baseball should enjoy losing. Of course, that attitude must be within reason for the youngest and non-competitive leagues. However, losing is a part of the competition so coaches must know what to do after losing. Few things are more important than helping kids learn to deal with adversity and the best coaches know how to help teams stay engaged, learn resiliency, and get over disappointments. Following are some ways coaches can do just that and with a printable guide to remind you from time to time and keep you on your toes. Keeping these in mind is especially necessary when teams lose a lot becauseit is easy for people, coaches, players, and parent, to become negative and cynical under those conditions. Of course, just as important is knowing what not to do like getting angry, singling out individual's play, and blaming kids for their efforts. It doesn't hurt to include players' parents in thepost-game meeting so they learn to do the same things after games.
