Coaching a youth baseball or softball team can be an incredibly
rewarding experience. As a manager/coach, you will have a direct impact
on the level of enjoyment that your players experience.
Each team in the competitive divisions should practice at least once
each week in addition to the game schedule. Even if only a handful of
players show up to your practices, they can be worthwhile. The key to a
successful practice is keeping all of the players involved and getting
them lots of touches. At the bottom of this page, there are a selection
of drills that you can try.
Ice - every manager must bring ice to every game and practice
First Aid - every manager should have basic supplies
AED - an AED must be present at every game/practice. An AED is located at every field
Team bag - your equipment
Line-up board - a white board where you can post the order (available in all sporting goods stores)
