Discover a revolutionary and superior way to coach! Games Approach to Coaching Baseball shows you how to use this new approach to help 6- to 14-year-old athletes learn game skills and tactics more effectively than with the traditional “drills-first, play-later” approach. The games approach begins with kids playing the game. As they play, they learn and appreciate the skills and tactics needed to play the game successfully. Games are modified to strengthen individual technique and team play. Kids have more fun and are more motivated to practice in these small-sided games rather than standing in boring drill lines.
Games Approach to Coaching Baseball clearly demonstrates how to:
