Coaching and Training
This page provides links to sites that detail some great coaching and / or training tips.
Do a bit of digging on each page and you will almost certainly always find one or two little gems for practice or for just making training a bit different or more directed.
These are mostly US pages, so some of the references may not apply to Australia, but it has to be said, they have a great handle on ‘training’ approach as distinct from ‘practice’.
It’s always good to learn new things so, if you are keen to improve your batting swing mechanics, your pitching form or just to know how better to set up on a particular play, then check these out:
► QC.com – an excellent site with pages dedicated to drills, tips, plays and situations and general coaching information.
► Baseball Playbook – PDF file of drills and plays
► Baseball Drills and Coaching Tips – a good page with a lot of links to practical drills
► Playball USA – a US resource for training & coaching tips
► Baseball Victoria’s coaching accreditation page – a resource for coaching programs at all levels
… and for a different perspective on baseball drills and coaching check out Domingo Ayala Beisbol Academy for some magnificent baseball tips – the video features are particularly excellent
