Coaching Youth Baseball: Ages 5 to 8

Coaching Youth Baseball: Ages 5 to 8

Description

Welcome to the wonderful world of Coaching Youth Baseball!

We've designed this plan for coaches, parents and volunteers who want to learn more about baseball while developing their ability to teach youth players. Congratulations on making the commitment to the players.

This plan is specifically intended for use at the T-Ball and Coach Pitch levels of youth baseball - or what we've titled "Ages 5 to 8". Inside, you'll find an entire library of exclusive video drills, coaching tips and downloadable practice materials conveniently organized into the following topics:

1.) Throwing
2.) Catching
3.) Fielding
4.) Hitting
5.) Baserunning

We've intentionally focused on these five skills because they are fundamental to the game of baseball and essential for players to learn at this age before progressing to more organized game play. At the end, we've also included a collection of videos called "Coaching Tips and Advice" - these provide valuable insight on everything from practice organization to dealing with parents to help you along the way. You can access any piece of content online at anytime to get a step ahead of the game in planning your team practices and training sessions.
