CA District 12 LL: Welcome

District 12 LL Spring 2015

Welcome to the home of District 12 Little League.  I'm very excited that you have decided to support your child in a sport I have loved for a long time.  Little League baseball is a foundation which provides youth worldwide with the opportunity to learn the sport, but also to play in a fun, safe environment with their peers.  Other than just the game itself, children learn important social skills, team building, courage, and character.  Founded in 1939, Little League Baseball annually helps over 2.6 million children of all ages, nationalities, and abilities worldwide  to be better citizens and display the utmost sportsmanship.  It's with your support and guidance that makes this possible.  Thank you for visiting this site and from here you can find the 10 leagues within our district.  If you have any concerns which you feel your local league is not addressing to your satisfaction, please contact the league's Player Agent, or me directly and I'll be happy to assist you.  See you in the bleachers!

Jenice Condie - District 12 Administrator

All managers, coaches & parents are highly encouraged to attend. The success of any program depends on a successful teaching and support program for coaches and players. This first focus is based on using sound teaching principles. We should be aware that player skill development is the foundation of baseball and what children don’t know is not their fault. The teach, demonstrate, practice and evaluate method will be the basic teaching sequence that has been the success for so many coaches. Learning to play baseball correctly and successfully is the goal of any player. The second focus of a quality program is believing that there are many ‘life skills’ that could even be more important than baseball skills. At every opportunity with a group of players or your team, spend a few minutes per practice or game explaining one essential ‘life skill.’ Skills such as hustle, commitment, punctuality, good sportsmanship and responsibility will be a few emphasized over the course of a season. While baseball skill development is important for individual success, it is as important for us to help develop youngsters to be good citizens and value the skills associated with teamwork.

    

The Teaching for Tomorrow Education Program is our innovative instruction sessions for managers and coaches. We are proud to be entering the sixth year of an extremely successful venture and is the Heart of Little League Canada. Our baseball program is where people from many different backgrounds, ages, and cultures come together to provide a safe, positive environment where children can have fun and learn the wonderful game of baseball. Every year baseball touches the lives of thousands of kids and volunteer parents who dedicate their time to teach the game. Often, these volunteers come to the sport with very little coaching background and many with limited knowledge of baseball. What they do have is a strong desire to help the kids and we have the training program to service the needs of the novice to the veteran teachers of the game. All necessary skills and drills will be included in the structure of the clinic. The participants will complete the components that form the nucleus of the program: safety, fun, and teaching players to love the game which, in turn, will bring them back for another season.  

 

Come out and enjoy the experience of this unique instructional program. If so inclined, coaches and managers may attend both sessions and interested parents are always welcome. Wear comfortable clothing, bring a glove, a lot of enthusiasm and join National Coach, Al Herback, who will bring the program to life for you!

 

Sincerely,

 

Jenice Condie - District Administrator        Al Herback - National Coach
