Age 7-9

The 7-9 age group is one of the most challenging ages to coach. So much is changing – from seeing live pitching for the first time to jumping up a level to farm team and in many cases – Little League. As a coach, it’s hard to know where to begin!

No need to worry. Our 10-week lesson plan will not only help you better organize your practices, but also introduce challenging skills in a way that’s comfortable, fun and engaging for your young players. Not only is each drill intricately written out for you in your practice plan – but you’ll have the opportunity to supplement it with the video content below. That means that you’ll get to see everything in action for yourself!
