At Little League we have recognized we want to improve our program to make it more fun and educational for all of our members. We can best teach our kids through our coaches. Train one coach and they will teach many players through their lifetime. We at CSLL began by offering free winter clinics with the Victoria Premier Mariners. We followed this up by inviting everyone to a 1 hour meeting hosted by our VP of Development who played college baseball in the US. He talked about how to make baseball fun, fast paced and simple. We are holding jamborees to start the year for our Blastball thru Rookie programs for more hands on training for managers and coaches. We then provide you with the Little League training program (online under our Managers tab under Coaching Resources) for both Tball and Coach Pitch.
But we’re not alone! Other Little Leagues are doing the same. Beacon Hill has hired a professional instructor to come train their volunteers. You can take part in this as well. Read more below.
Training Offered for Coaches and Parents
To mark our 60th Season, Beacon Hill is planning a number of projects and initiatives that will create a legacy for Little League baseball and softball in our community. One of these initiatives is enhanced training and resources for our valuable volunteer coaches, manager and parent helpers.
Beacon Hill has arranged to bring Coach Trainer Al Herback to Victoria for two sessions of his highly-acclaimed training entitled Baseball Basics: Emphasizing Athletic Development:
Session 1 – Introduction to Baseball Basics (ages 5 thru 8), Monday April 4, 6-10 pm
Session 2 – Beyond Baseball Basics (ages 9 thru 12), Tuesday April 5, 6-10 pm.
Both sessions will be held at the Victoria High School Gymnasium. Registration each evening begins at 5:30pm. Coach training is free for participants from Beacon Hill. Participants from outside Beacon Hill will be changed a nominal fee at the door ($20).
Additional information about the sessions is available here.
