Baseball Dugout Diaries Issue 3 (February 22, 2013) – Our local youth traveling program offers a very good coaching clinic free to anyone that might be involved in coaching their program.  The local high school coach, in this case Tony Market of Lakeville North High School, puts the clinic on.  It is extremely nice for Coach Market and the organization to do this because it does help the youth coaches from the community learn about simple drills and practice ideas they can use for the upcoming season.  Hitting drills, pitching tips, fielding a ground ball, baseball situations, etc.

I have never been to one of Coach Market’s clinics, but I have lots of respect for him and the program he has built.  I have only heard positive comments from the people in our community that have knowledge of his program.  Based on what I have seen and heard, he runs a very well respected program.

I was unable to make it to the clinic because we closed on our house sale that evening and needed to take care of that, which is a whole other story.  To say the least, I am glad that part of our move is done!

Either way, I hope most community programs around the country give their youth coaches some sort of training like this.  Make sure to encourage your program to use the expertise in your community to help coaches, that may be brand new to the game, learn some simple ideas.

Another option is to utilize an online resource like Baseball Coaching Clinics. We have contributed content to this site and think it will be great resource for new and continuing coaches alike. Let us know what you think!

Let me know if there is anything I can do to help your program get something like this started!

Have a good day!
