As coaches – we should always strive to achieve two objectives: 1) Become better coaches who run great practices – and; 2) Teach kids how to play the game in a way that meets them where they’re at in their development and helps lay the foundation for sustained success and enjoyment as they grow with the game.
But we also know it’s not that easy! Coaching – regardless of your experience level – always presents new challenges to grapple with. If you’re a brand new coach – how do you structure a practice? If you’re an advanced coach – how do you balance winning with having fun? How do you help push your best players to the next level without neglecting your less talented kids? As baseball coaches we all will or have struggled with these kinds of questions at some point in time. Lucky for you – our team here at InsideBaseball.com has an answer for you!
