This clinic is free for all District 19 Managers and Coaches. Each attendee will also receive a fifty page Youth Baseball Coaches Training manual authored by APU Head Coach Paul Svagdis.

Coach Svagdis will teach CA District 19 coaches how to develop a specific practice plan for two adults to run a full two hour practice effectivly. No more will twelve to fifteen players be waiting while only one player at a time gets his or her reps. These fundamentals are central to not only recognize and understand certain fundamental skills our young athletes need to master, but also as important to value and incorporate the overarching philosophy that drives the learning process.
These are the same fundamentals that Coach Paul taught last year in the lecture hall at APU in front of a packed house. The response from his seminar was outstanding from all who attended. Coach Paul has authored a book called Youth Baseball Fundamentals, it is a training manual designed to help coaches at all levels teach youth baseball and softball.  Each manager and coach in attendance will receive this fifty page training manual. This training manual is specifically geared at teaching Little League Coaches in all levels how to teach the fundamentals of Little League Baseball and Softball by helping you understand how to break down effective drills for fielding, hitting, base running and pitching.
This year Coach Paul Svagdis along with his Cougar baseball team will be performing the field clinic bringing the same philosophies and fundamentals to the baseball field with hands on demonstrations and coach participation. This is sure to be a training seminar you do not want to miss.
