Product Description

Product Description

"I coached with Drew in the early '90s and his style and ideas continue to maximize all players' potential by simplifying and slowing down the speed of the game."
- John Mozeliak
St. Louis Cardinals General Manager


TAKE ADVANTAGE OF THIS SPECIAL PRICE AND BE YOUR BEST FOR YOUR PLAYERS! USE THESE TOOLS AND START YOUR 2016 CHAMPIONSHIP RUN WITH THIS POPULAR 5-STAR COACHING BOOK BY A COACH! REAL REVIEWS BY REAL COACHES JUST LIKE YOU...


Current back-to-back-to-back State Champion Coach, Drew Coolidge, is in the coaching trenches every day and shares his proven methods of coaching and developing players in today's organized sport's world. There is a lot more to coaching than skills and drills and you will learn to Coach Like A Champion while seeing the results on and off the field...guaranteed.

KEEP IT SIMPLE!

Mike Matheny, Bruce Bochy and Joe Madden are three of the best coaches in the game. Why? They keep it simple and develop trusting relationships with their players. You can do the same for any age group you coach!

There are some books that teach coaches what to do in practice and how to run certain drills. This book goes into extra innings (check out the reviews!) and explains why and how to create a situational practice. Plus, you will learn strategic coaching skills that will put your team in the best position to win.

Yogi Berra nailed it when he said, "Baseball is 90% mental and the other half is physical."

So, are you coaching the mental side or just doing drills? COACH LIKE A CHAMPION teaches you how to coach baseball simply and with a purpose.

This up-to-date book covers everything you need to do to help your players succeed...including:
- New drills designed for specific game situations
- Practice plans for Tee-ball through Legion
- Innovative goals for the team and all the players (no matter their ability)
- How to deal with parents in 2016
- Methods to get the most out of yourself, each player, each practice and each game
- IBP (Individualized Baseball Plan)

Click the "LOOK INSIDE" on the cover and you will find sample practice schedules for all ages PLUS special "FOR THE BULLPEN IN YOUR BRAIN" and "COACHING HINTS" sections that will prepare you for any curveball thrown your way. What count is the best to steal a base? Should a batter be walked to allow for a force-out even if the next batter is an RBI leader?

COACHING AMERICA'S PASTIME...RESPONSIBLE FOR AMERICA'S FUTURE

*** A COACH'S GUIDE TO PRACTICE, PLAYING and PARENTS *** There is only one championship team at the end of each season... are you coaching your team to be its best? If you only practice hitting, if you only practice fielding and if you only practice throwing then you will only be the best "practice team." This book will teach you how to prepare your team for games and preparing for game situations separates the "practice teams" from The Championship Team. Buy now and you will immediately have that drive and passion you need to make this the best season you have ever coached.

Having read Drew Coolidge's entertaining Parenting: 'Twas The Night Before Sports... (Parenting Books) and instructive Parenting: SAY GOODBYE TO THE SLUMP (Coaching Youth Baseball) I was glad to discover this longer and more general guide to baseball coaching from him. It's highly informative, written in the same easy to follow style and packed with useful ideas and guidance. For the current Kindle price it's a bargain.

There's nothing like coaching when it's delivered by a veteran! Drew Coolidge's innate coaching skills and his years of experience come into play in this well-detailed, brilliantly written coaching book. The strategies and coaching hints outlined here are invaluable. You can be certain you won't find this kind of information elsewhere!

HASH(0xa6011510) out of 5 stars FOR NEW YOUTH HEAD COACHES Aug. 6 2014
By Jason Smith - Published on Amazon.com
Format: Kindle Edition Verified Purchase
Very good intro book that isn't overly simplistic like many (okay 99%) of the other intro coaching books out there. I've been coaching rec ball for my son for the last four years and have read many resources as baseball isn't my native sport. I'd put this right there with Cap Ripken's Coaching tome as two that you can rely on for the meat of your coaching education when starting out.

Where Ripken's book is heavy on individual drills and many different practices, this book gives a newer coach a good framework from which to work when planning for successful practice and execution. There's also plenty of good information on communicating with parents and coaching to the individual abilities of your players. There really is only one practice outline (the one thing that EVERY SINGLE REC COACH [aka somebody's dad] IN THE WORLD needs as much as anything else), but I feel with his outline and Ripken's volumes of drills I'll be able to put together some entertaining and effective practices.

I followed the direction in the back of the book and got VIP access to Drew's website, but there isn't much there other than a few links and Youtube videos. Drew was quick to respond to my request personally and even inquired about my experience level and offered his support if I ever had any questions. He also mentioned a new book coming out that would cover his team's consecutive championship seasons, I'll likely buy that one too.

Having read many books and blogs, I can say that anybody relatively new to head coaching 5-12 year olds would definitely benefit from this book.
