Why You Should Coach Youth Baseball
By Chip Lemin
The next time you go to a youth baseball practice or any type
of youth practice, take notice of what most parents do. They pull up in their vehicle, drop off the player and leave. At the
most they may notify the coach that they are leaving. This is not to say anything negative about the parents, this is what
most coaches will encounter.
Thank goodness they have people like yourself, will come to
practice and stay to help. That makes you a very good candidate to become an excellent baseball coach. Because you have read
this article, and made it this far shows me that you have what it takes to be a fantastic coach.
You really only need the desire to help young players learn
the game of baseball. In today's culture there are many-distractions. Kids are really in need of good positive coaches. It
is very rewarding to coach youth baseball when you are aware of what you are up against. You need to know of negative parents,
selfish players, and of the tools to deal with them effectively. Being a coach is more than just been an instructor at, you
have to be a public relations person to a degree.
Our young players need you today more than ever. You can make
a real positive impact as a baseball coach. There is plenty of excellent information available to help you succeed. In my
opinion the human element, such as parents, other coaches, umpires, etc. is what makes coaching youth baseball too challenging
for most people.
Today's coaching philosophy is to be loud and obnoxious. I
feel that being a calm, positive, confident coach is the best way. Lead by example, for instance, do not harass the umpires
or show them up. Refrain from yelling out anything negative at your players on the field after a mistake. The player already
knows a mistake has been made. Your responsibility as a complete coach is to get them prepared for the next possible play
, that what is already over.
Travel baseball or select all-star type teams will have serious
sometimes overbearing coaches. Most of these coaches are very fair, good people. It only takes a few coaches to give youth
baseball a black eye. That is why we need people like yourself to help bring solid baseball instruction, along with good leadership
qualities, sorely lacking in youth baseball today.
Most coaching material on the Internet doesn't give you the
important info out how to deal with parents, for example. Much of the coaching material on the Internet will not help you
learn how to be a calm, confident, positive leader. There is more to coaching youth baseball that yelling out to your hitters
to keep your elbow up, which is wrong anyway.
