2015 Big Al Coaching Clinic


Little League is pleased to announce an enhancement to its volunteer coaches training programs with the addition of “Big Al Baseball” Clinics and several new tools, materials and resources. In 2015, many Little League districts and leagues across North America will have the opportunity to participate in the clinic series.

Big Al and his son Scott have provided hands on training to over 150,000 coaches and their program is recognized internationally.  They bring their passion for Little League and a rich set of experiences as players, coaches, instructors and professional educators to every training session.

The clinics are organized into two four-hour training sessions;  One session targets coaches and parents working with players 9-to-13 years old and the second session is for coaches of players 5-to-8 yrs old. Both sessions are designed to help coaches and coaching coordinators; teach the skills, correct common mistakes, plan active practices, leverage effective drills and competitions and organize proper warms and pre-game activities.
