THREE COACHING HINTS




MAKE A PRACTICE SCHEDULE
Always make out a daily practice schedule. Properly label each practice session, drill, task or play that you cover.

Make sure to post this schedule before practice and that each of your assistant coaches have a copy. Stick to it: Organization is a sign of discipline and also emphasizes the value of practice time. Players pick up on this very quickly.

KEEP RECORDS
Important in long-term practice scheduling. Keep your practice schedules in a folder, in order. You can then go back to see when you last covered a task or practiced a skill or play. This record keeping also makes it easier to make out future practice schedules.

UMPIRE NAME CALLING
It is important to build a good rapport with the umpire or umpires working your game. Calling them "blue" often does not help in this endeavor. I suggest that you address them by their names. I am not good at remembering names so I always write their name in my left palm. I will always address them by their first name when I ask a question or have conversation between innings.
