Baseball Coaching Strategy Meter:
What do others think of your baseball coaching?
How are you looked upon as a baseball coach?
Why are some looked upon as having good baseball reputations?
Are we coaches judged entirely on wins and loses?
We are responsible to help our kids get better. That means we have to seek ways to improve our own coaching methods.
| “Coaches serve at the pleasure of their players, so they have an OBLIGATION to seek knowledge and to test new information.”
Adam Newland; Inside Pitch Magazine / Spring 2017 .

| “In addition to regular analysis of their standard coaching points, coaches should continue to seek opportunities for professional development.
Sadly, coaching is one of the few professions that does not require professional development for a large portion of practitioners.
People who consider themselves to be serious practitioners in the coaching profession do their players and programs a significant disservice when they fail to seek professional development opportunities.”
Adam Newland; Inside Pitch Magazine/ Spring 2017 .

"The biggest change I’ve seen is the hitting approach. Allowing them to swing freely has opened the game up for a lot of these kids. All but one set of parents came up to me personally to thank me for the season.
I heard things like,
“He’s never had this much fun playing baseball,”
“He can’t wait to come to baseball."
“This is the best year he’s had"
I am so grateful for your podcast and your coaching couse, and resources. It has given me an enormous amount of confidence and has allowed me, hopefully, to make the biggest impact possible on these young people and my community.
It’s not just a system, it’s a mindset!” Justin S.
How long does it take to finish the course content?
You go at your pace. There is not time limit and you have access whenever you want it. Typically, most would do a unit each week and finish in 4-8 weeks. If you want to cram you could finish in a week. If you did 30-45 minutes a day you would be done in a 2-3 weeks.
Is there a lot of reading?
Some optional reading material for your review to backup the video material. Most of the content is video lectures with power points and diagrams.
This is not an overwhelming course. It is meant to get right to the point and give you vital knowledge and pertinent information you can use immediately and not burden your time. More is not always better. Keep it simple and be really good at a few things.
What device do I need?
The course is accessible on any computer or pad or Iphone.
How long do I have access to the class?
You have log in rights anytime you want for as long as you want.
Is there a test or quiz?
No final exam, test or even a quiz. Everyone gets an A+ grade.
Should I take notes?
To get the most out of the material I would highly recommend you have a binder or note book to keep a journal of notes. You can add your own ideas and side notes as you go.
Do you show us hitting and pitching mechanics?
Those areas are a course of their own. Some generalities are presented by I didn't have room to get deep in the weeds with mechanics in this course.
What will happen when I take this course?
Nothing but good. If you are faithful to complete all the assignments it will definitely make a huge difference? Will likely change your outlook on player development.
Who is this for?
Coaches at all levels. Rookies and experienced. I have know youth coaches that have volunteered coaching for years but I would not necessarily describe them as top coaches. Everyone has room to get better.
You want a college coach or a pro scout to walk in your ballpark and think, "Ok, someone here has coached these kids." You can just tell by the way the kids play catch and if the dugout is in order and how kids transition on and off the field.
If you walk in the ballpark and see a lefty playing SS or a 3B standing on 3B holding the runner 'on the base' then you know we have an issue with higher level baseball coaching knowledge.
