Coaching Little League
I just got back from my nephew’s baseball game. It’s funny to see how different coaches approach their little league teams. Some coaches it’s about fun, and they don’t care if they win or lose. Then some will win at all cost. Which winning can be fun, but the whole team may not share in the pleasure.
It’s important that coaches keep one thing in mind. It’s the kids! They should always come first. Same goes for parents too. Some parents are too involved in the score, than what’s going on. Coaches need to hear the imput from the parents, and take that in consideration. It’s also true, that parents have to let the coaches coach. It’s a two way communication route that needs to be open both ways. Closing down one of these ways, can later lead to an ugly situation.
Now when it comes to winning, and having fun. It has to be done with a balance approach. Your not going to make everyone happy, so don’t try coaches! Just let the kids know you are trying to win, and are making decisions to try and accomplish that. At the same time, make sure everyone plays, and is involved. Having the guy on the team that never says a word, only gets to play part of the game, is probably not having that good of a time. Give that player confidence, and find ways to work with him or her. Yes, it’s all about having fun, but seems like winning is always the best fun!
