Big Al Coaching Clinic Returns for 25th Year - Feb 20, 2016

Each year, District 57 is pleased to offer, at no cost to the participants, training for managers, coaches, and parents in how they can teach baseball skills to youth players.

This year, for the 25th consecutive year, Big AL and Scott Price will return to District 57 to provide this instruction.  The date will be a few weeks later than in the past, so that we can provide the opportunity to get more younger coaches involved.  The pair will be coming to conduct coaches training on Saturday, February 20, 2016 at Dougherty High School.

All managers - coaches - adults involved - parents - etc are encouraged to attend. There is no cost to District 57 participants.  As this is an adult training session, we ask that there be No Children Please.   

All CA57 leagues participate in this clinic and there is no cost to any CA57 member.   Big Al has launched his on-line Big Al coaches module - watch out for this. For non CA57 attendees, or for CA57 leagues which would like to purchase additional materials for your leagues, please see this handout.

 If you enjoyed the Big AL Coaches Clinic in the past , please provide feedback to your league president. This training would not exist without the support of the 12 leagues in District 57.

* April 2015 - we headed down to San Bernardino over winter break with 10 teams.  This was the San Bernardino Classic.VI.

* July 2015 -  All Stars with our teams doing outstanding.   In 50-70's the combined team from Danville/SRV/TVLL won the CA57 title which gave them the automatic berth into the 50-70's World Series.   In the 10-11's - Canyon Creek went to the championship game of the Nor Cal Division; 50-70's the combined team from Pleasanton advanced to the Regional play in Nogales, Arizona.    Congrats to all teams on a great year.

What can you look forward to in 2016? From the Big Al Mgr & Coaches Clinic to scorekeeping clinics to pitching clinics to player agent / league officials clincs to our very popular beginner, intermediate and advanced umpire clinics - we will have a clinic that can meet any or all of your needs. Lastly - our umpires put on one of the best regular and post season rules clinics in the country -- don't miss any of these outstanding clinics.

Other things to keep an eye out for ...and keep an eye on the calendar...there are many fantastic training programs both locally and also provided at the LL Western Region HQ's in San Bernardino.

Remember the fun starts at 4 years old with Tee Ball -- and then players progress up to age 12 in the majors program..... BUT the real fun starts with our D57 programs of 50-70's or the many levels of Juniors and Senior/Big League offerings --- these divisions are for ages 13 to 18 - AND - they are a blast!!! Remember - LLB does provide a full softball program - we'd love to have you help us start that back up in 57 ....LL Softball also has world series at all levels.
