Baseball, otherwise known as ‘America’s pastime,’ is one of the most popular sports to get your kids involved in. It teaches many valuable lessons and encourages teamwork and problem-solving. If you are a kid looking to get in the game or a parent looking for more information about the sport, we have put together some baseball facts for kids that should help you find out everything you need to know before committing.
When it comes to coaching, it is very important to make sure that your kids are doing baseball drills that will effectively improve their game. There are plenty of drills out there and it is easy to get bogged down with drills that don’t work. Create an atmosphere where your players are able to give their own input on drills and how you can improve them. These drills from QualityCoaching are great, but ultimately, your players are the ones playing the game and they will know the nuances of what works and what doesn’t.
Being a baseball coach is no easy task, no matter what level of the game you are coaching. It’s important to realize the impact you have on these kids, from the development of their game to growing them as people. You have a massive impact on their lives and have an opportunity to shape the next generation. You will learn as much as the kids themselves. It truly is one of the most rewarding things. We’ve put together some baseball coaching tips to make sure you are prepared to teach every aspect of the game.
If you’ve followed along with our blog lately, you know that we took a look at some of the best baseball blogs to follow. Since it was such a hit and we’re massive fans of both slow and fast-pitch softball, we thought we would put together a list of the best softball blogs to follow. This was not quite as easy as the baseball one because there were far less blogs to go through. Worry not, we’ve skimmed through the ones we feel are worthy of making the list and are here to present them to you. Some of the blogs helped steer us in the direction of other good ones with active post history, so we appreciate you for that.
