Online Baseball Coaches Resource Library: Now Available
Purpose - The idea behind this is to provide baseball coaches from various levels in our community a hands-on, detailed, and visual resource package for planning and implementing effective practices.
Content - To make this service as appealing and useful as possible, a real hands-on approach has been taken. This website includes actual photographs, diagrams, and video footage of athletes executing various drills. Basically, anything that is going to help a coach fully understand what it is they are trying to teach,and how to teach it.
Delivery - This information is presented in an on-line format that can be downloaded to anyone’s computer. This means that a coach in need of practice ideas as well as effective teaching techniques, can enter our web site, search through the on-line library, gather drills and other related methods of proper skill progression, and put together a practice that is well-organized and efficient.
