        Big Al  Clinic

District 33 is proud to host the 2017 "Big Al" Coaching Clinic featuring Al & Scott Price on Sunday January 29th, 2017. Al's teaching philosophy comes from decades of experience he has culminated over the years into this comprehensive, easy-to-follow approach to learning the fundamentals of baseball, softball and tee ball. Scott, (Al's son) will assist at the clinic and brings a fresh new perspective to the training after playing college baseball in Texas and graduating with his Kinesiology and Teaching degree and from running his own Player development Camps.

Each component of the program ties together principles of learning that have proven effective time and time again. Al and Scott have distilled their knowledge in a way that makes it easy for kids, parents and coaches to learn. Here's how he does it, in a nutshell: All the fundamental skills are clearly identified. Each skill is broken down into a series of simple, straight forward steps presented in a learnable progression. Skills are presented in a creative and motivating manner that is easy for anyone from the novice to the more experienced to follow. Above all, he never forgets that the game is supposed to be active - and fun. Big Al's Teach it - Try It - Game It approach has helped both new and experienced coaches build Little League teams with a solid foundation of basic skills.

Take advantage of this great, well-planned program: do it for the kids! Al and Scott have developed a complete series of instructional resources that match the clinic instruction. The resources were reviewed and approved by Little League International in the spring of 2010.

Big Al will have Membership Cards for his 4 online training and development programs for coaches and parents available for purchase at the clinic. Coaches of players 4-8 and 9-12 as well as for Parents of those age groups.

Big Al now has a League-Wide License approach and pricing for leagues. Leagues can either invest in a League Wide License for all of their Coaches…or invest in the League Wide License for all of their coaches and parents.
Individual Memberships:
Individual Coaching Memberships are $30.00 ea
Individual Parent Memberships are $25.00 ea

Depending on the size of your league you can get Memberships for all of your coaches for as little as $200.00 for leagues with 6-10 teams or $400.00 for leagues with 11-30 teams and $600.00 for leagues with 31-50 teams. Contact Big Al at 1 866 940 0227 or email him at al@bigalbaseball.com to get a League License order form and all of the detail on how you can provide memberships to all of your coaches at a great price in 2016.

District 33 - This is a free clinic to everyone in District 33. You can register by clicking on the link next to the clinic description or at the door for each clinic. We are asking for all members of our local leagues board of directors that have not attended a coach's clinic to please attend this one. D33 requires that all managers and coaches attend both a coaches and a safety clinic every 3 years. Every team must have a coach that has attended a coaches and a safety clinic in 2016 in order to participate in our District ran tournaments, such as CBI, DDM and TOC. These clinics fulfill the D33 coaches' clinic requirement. Parents are welcome to attend as well.
