'I love this book and will recommend to all my future coaches' - Carl Crooks, President, Bolingbrook (Illinois) Tee Ball Association. 'This book is thorough, user-friendly, informative, and right on the money. There is nothing else like it, and it is sorely needed. Kudos on a fabulous work!' - Wanda Rutledge, President, National Council of Youth Sports Coach. You just volunteered to coach your child's tee ball team, and now you realize you're not sure how tee ball differs from baseball, or how to help these 4- to 8-year-olds on the road to improvement while also ensuring that they feel safe and have fun. Don't despair - "Coaching Tee Ball" is here to help. "Coaching Tee Ball" gives you the basic rules and procedures of the game, sample practices, and advice and tips from experienced tee ball coaches and organizers (and parents). Also included are activities that introduce basic hitting, throwing, running, and fielding skills in an atmosphere that emphasizes fun and participation. Along the way, you'll learn a thing or two about coaching style and how to make improvement - rather than winning or losing - the goal of your season. This book helps you: survive your first practice and game; reach all your players; improve your players and your team; create a positive attitude and build team spirit; be the coach you never had; and, make practices fun, safe, and rewarding. 'This is the type of book every parent and coach should read. The insights, information, and instruction are invaluable. I know I will refer to it often' - Roy Nelson, President, Canyon Creek Little League, San Ramon, California. 'This book is an easy-to-follow road map for success. It should be required reading for parents, coaches, and league directors' - Tom McClure, Coach, Northside Youth Organization, Atlanta, Georgia. 'It is great to see a book on tee ball that covers all the aspects of the game and how to run a team' - Carl Crooks, President, Bolingbrook (Illinois) Tee Ball Association.
