We play wiffleball in the fall. One because its fun and two because it helps our kids be competitive.
We chart with a point system in batting practice
4 points for a home run
3 for a gap shot
2 for a line-drive
You’ve got to hit the ball well to be able to get your points
We have big brother/little brother program. Every senior gets 3-4 kids and the seniors have to communicate and and all expectations of the program.
(On player responsibility) I tell our guys that we dont punish you, but we do hold you accountable to be a better man and a better baseball player.
Until we start scrimmages, all of our teams practice together. We break them up into 4 groups and they rotate around to 4 different stations coached by 2-3 different coaches. That way all of our players get coached by all of our coaches.
We all want our players to go out and be leaders, but what have we done to teach them what that looks like?
Its really hard to lead if you’ve never been taught
