Professional Coaches Manual15,00 $
Youth coaching is not about winning games. Superior youth coaches help
athletes master new skills, enjoy competition with others, and develop a
team first attitude. They are well-versed in the techniques and skills of their
sport, and understand how to effectively teach those skills through age
appropriate practice regimens and skill drills.
While sport is an integral part of our culture, coaching has not always
been seen as a true profession. This attitude is gradually changing, and
coaching can no longer be perceived as a hobby or an informal second
job. A coach’s influence on young adults is far too great to take for
granted. DNA Sports firmly believes that volunteer coaches have no less
responsibility than do professional coaches in teaching and developing
young athletes.15,00 $
League Curriculum Map7,00 $
It is critical for league administrators to create a structured program where all participants are prepared for each subsequent level of play. In order to make this happen, we have created an age appropriate, skill based curriculum that promotes coaching consistency within age groups and development progression across age groups. Similar to school curriculum, this coaching curriculum guide identifies age specific outcome goals in relation to skill and personal development, helping league administrators better streamline their multi-level programs.7,00 $
Baseball Curriculum Manual15,00 $
Through years of experience and research, including hundreds of baseball publications, skills and drills books, and coaching publications, DNA Sports has created a highly-detailed yet easy to understand age-appropriate youth coaching curriculum manual.
While the formation of a school wide curriculum—an integrated body of knowledge, principles, values, and skills—is a critical component of educational institutions, rarely is the creation of a universal curriculum applied to athletic associations. DNA Sports believes that the creation of an athletic curriculum that standardizes best practices is critical for the long-term growth and development of any youth baseball organization.
The purpose of this baseball curriculum manual is to develop coaching consistency within age groups and a developmental progression across age groups. This curriculum will ensure that your youth league players are provided with the best baseball learning environment possible.15,00 $
