First Sentence
The perception of you as a competent and experienced coach can mask the reality of your "rookie" status if you project an image of confidence, authority, and control right from the beginning of your coaching career. Read the first page

A Good T-Ball Reference March 26 2005
By J. Whealton - Published on
Format: Paperback
This was one of the books I chose for my inaugural season as a T-ball coach. In my search for reference material I've found that for as many books as there are out there for all manner of sports, books on T-ball are in short supply... good ones anyway. This book runs through coaching T-ball from beginning to end. Not just on the field stuff but pre-season, pre-game, post-game, parent relations, etc. I doubt just one book will contain all the information that a new coach needs but this one comes pretty close. If your a new coach I'm sure you will find alot in this book that will help to prepare you for the upcoming season. The reason for only 4 stars though is that I would like to see the drills and exercise section enlarged (surely the author, who is the co-founder and president of the T-ball USA association, can come up with more drills or ideas for creative learning than what is presented in this book). Overall... probably the best choice for T-ball reference I could recommend at this time.

Must Buy for 1st Timers! May 31 2009
By Clinton Andersen - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
I am a first timer T-Ball coach. I volunteered to be the assistant coach and they were short on individuals so I had to step up and be full blown coach. I knew nothing. This book has helped out tremendously with everything from drills to running a game. I would definitely recommend this book to anybody. Of course, there are some things you're going to have to learn on your own and some things that you will be able to explain better to children (for instance, on how to hold the ball they explain it by keeping the thumb and pinky low and the other three fingers on top holding the ball on the pads of the fingers. Instead of telling 4, 5, and 6 year olds this it's easier to tell them to make a "tiger claw" and that's how they hold the ball) but overall this book will get you to where you need to be!

Excellent Guide for First Time Coaches June 29 2008
By Joe - Published on
Format: Paperback Verified Purchase
As a first time coach I had little idea what to expect when preparing for coaching a T ball team. This was a perfect guide to organize with and prepare the team for a season. I have worked through the five practices now and have gained confidence in running the team based on the guidelines presented in this book. I would recommend it to anyone who needs to coach a team. It truly is a step by step guide so is invaluable for a first time coach.

First Season Head Coach's Best Friend March 11 2013
By Josh Walker - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
I am giving this book five stars because the information goes right with the title. I signed up to be an assistant coach this season. I was asked to step up and be a head coach instead. I was excited, but this would be my first season. This book gives so much insight a first time coach. The drills to run during practice make sense and the author explains why they work. There is also a ton of information about things you wouldn't think about, such as how to work with parents. If you are coaching or assistant coaching, this is the book for you!

Huge Help! Sept. 28 2012
By Dahlia - Published on
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
My favorite part of this book was the Introduction: So You Said You'd Be the Coach, Huh? Because that is EXACTLY what happened to my husband and I.
And we were most definitely "Baffled Parents". Especially me. I love baseball but this was a whole new ballpark to me. These kids were young and I had no idea where to start. I downloaded this book about a week before our first practice and by Practice Day, I was definitely tons more confident.
Awesome! We completely recommend this book to anyone who finds themselves as coaches.
