 Coaching Youth Baseball | 4 Concepts for Coaching Youth Baseball

Coachingcoachtrev writes "On the surface the real job of a baseball coach seems easy to identify, win baseball games. Put the right players in the right positions, build team chemistry, and motivate them to win. However difficult building a championship caliber team may be, it?s only one of the jobs a baseball coach has. In fact, it should be the last task on the coach?s list. When I first began coaching, I made the mistake of thinking that I was teaching how to play baseball. I was wrong! What I should have been doing was setting an example and teaching kids how to build a foundation to be successful in life. I learned that during every practice, and every game you have the distinct opportunity to make an impact on you players.

 Should your child play up in youth baseball

The question of should younger players play up comes up every year. By “playing up” I mean allowing kids to play in an age group older than where they’re supposed to play. There really is not an answer that will make everybody happy. Kids develop youth baseball skills at different rates, so each situation should be looked at individually.

 What makes a good coach | Coaching Youth Baseball

Coaching Youth Baseball | What Makes A Good Coach

How do you determine whether if a game, practice, or youth baseball season is successful? Most think it is winning,if your first thought is winning, then we really need to take a look at your priorities at coaching youth baseball and as a youth baseball coach.

Wins and losses only determine success at the professional level. The pros are paid to play baseball and they are expected to win. If your players aren’t getting paid to be on the field, then your success has nothing to do with winning.

We believe a  record of wins and losses should never determine success in youth baseball. As coaches,it is our responsibility to the game of baseball is to create a positive, organized, fun environment that promotes the love for baseball within our players. Success is solely determined by whether or not the experience is enjoyable for the kids and whether or not they learn something. MOur goal has always to be sure they are learning something in youth baseball and everyone has different levels of learning but should come away with something from youth baseball practices and games.

If the kids are having fun and learn some things about playing baseball, we should feel very good about ourselves as coaches.

The new year is almost here, and that means a lot of people are thinking hard about resolutions. If you’re resolving to be a better coach in 2011, here are some goals you can focus on, regardless of the age group you are coaching.

 Using a video camera in youth baseball for coaches and players

CoachingCoachMc writes "

Youth Baseball Coaches should use a video camera as much as possible, especially in youth baseball hitting drills and youth baseball pitching drills.

Letting the players see themselves take a few swings or pitch in slow motion and/or frame by frame is the only way to go if you are really looking to break down mechanics properly.

 Rotational Hitting | Rotational Swing | Rotational Hitting Baseball Swing

Batting and hitting - Improve youth..CoachMc writes "Rotational Hitting is an approach to hitting that was first described by Ted Williams and then popularized by Mike Epstein. Rotational Hitting is generally about learning to power the swing with the entire body -- and in particular the large muscles of the core -- rather than just the arms, wrists, and hands. While teaching a hitter Rotational Hitting will sometimes result in increased power and Home Runs, in general the idea is to just try to hit the ball hard since a hard-hit ball -- even if it is hit on the ground -- is harder to make a play on simply because it's moving faster.

 Psychology of Hitting | Hitting a Baseball

Batting and hitting - Improve youth..CoachMc writes "We found this informative article by Coach Dunn on the mental side of hitting.

Psychology of Hitting
By Coach Jack Dunn

Probably no skill in the field of athletics has been discussed, dissected and subjected to more coaching scrutiny than the art of hitting. A myriad of theories have evolved as to how this skill should be taught and the controversy continues. We thought it might be interesting to see what some of the Old Timers had to say. See if they sound familiar.

 Coaching Youth Baseball | Why Have a Fun Youth Baseball Practice

Coachingcoachtrev writes "Lets bring recreational baseball back. By recreational baseball I am talking about coaching youth baseball in local leagues, not the select traveling teams. Don't get me wrong, in coaching youth baseball, I have coached many local league teams and travel youth baseball teams. Both my sons play on travel teams.  But, there is a difference in local youth baseball and select youth baseball.

Local communities and their recreational youth baseball teams are a vital part of our society. What can we as youth baseball coaches do for the programs and why?

I've studied hitters during practice practices (BP) for years and come to the same conclusion each time. Hitters who take every pitch in this manner get pops, chops, and routine ground balls with every pitch. In fact, the going rate of hard hits is three or four out of ten."

 Ultimate Baseball - A great warmup or warmdown drill

Youth Baseball DrillsCoachPat writes "
Here's a competitive game/youth baseball drill your players will love that also serves as a great warm up or practice ending drill. "Ultimate Baseball" is modeled after "Ultimate" - a fast-moving team sport played with a Frisbee on a football field. The only difference in the baseball version is you play with a RIF 1 or safety-soft baseball and gloves. What makes it a great warm up drill is that you can start with as few as four players (2 on 2), and players can join in as they show up. Many of your kids are already familiar with Ultimate as it is a popular among PE teachers for it's simplicity and fun. As youth baseball coaches we are always looking for fun educational experiences for the kids. Click read more to see the drill from Coach pat and Coaching Youth baseball..

 Base Running In Youth Baseball | Key Points For Great Baserunning

Coachingcoachtrev writes "BASE RUNNING
Key Points For Base Running In Youth Baseball   

Base Running is very important in youth baseball. Sadly many coaches put it at the end of practice or wait till it is absolutely necessary before putting it in to practice time.There is only one thing that wins and looses ball games, and that would be runs. You cross the plate one more time than the other team at the end of the game you win.  The only way you are going to score runs in youth baseball is from running the bases and might I add running them not only aggressively, but intelligently. Nothing takes the air out of a team more than bad base running in youth baseball, it eliminates the possibility of scoring that runner and that could be and is often  the difference in the game. The statement to follow is the basic point I like to instill in base runners.."

 Three Approaches to Hitting in Youth Baseball

Batting and hitting - Improve youth..coachtrev writes "

There are three different approaches to teaching hitting in youth baseball

   - Linear Hitting
   - Extension Hitting
   - Rotational Hitting

From what i have seen, Linear Hitting is what most youth baseball players are taught -- Extension Hitting is what I was taught -- and Rotational Hitting is what most major league hitters actually do.

 How to hit the Ball | Youth Baseball Hitting

Batting and hitting - Improve youth..CoachMc writes "When I ask youth baseball hitters, what is the first step to get prepared to hit the ball hard? I get several different responses and for the for the most part they realize that it is something we do to get our bodies prepared to hit.  The key is when do we as youth baseball hitters do it?  I like to use a term “Early Load” and the key word is, early.  When is early?  I have a little saying, once pitchers get some where in the leg raise portion of the windup, a hitter needs to be doing something to get their body prepared to hit.  Because the hitter who is standing in the box and is not prepared will have a tough time being a successful
hitter.

 The Dugout | My Kid is in the Dugout too much

CoachingCoachMc writes "The dugout is the best place to watch a game. Youth baseball players can learn a lot about the game and their opponents they are up against. As a coach or parent, you should instill a mentality that time spent in the dugout should be focused on the game of baseball.  We have all heard "new pitcher" or "watch the pitcher" , we should let all the off-field distractions fade into the background and watch all the action on the youth baseball field.
Don’t underestimate the power of observation. Youth Baseball players should take in all the information that is available and use it when it is their turn to take the field.

Here are some things youth baseball players should be looking for while in the dugout..as a coach or parent it does not hurt to remind them occasionally.
