Baseball Skills Checklist ~ Sitting Down And Making A Map Of Skills And The Days You Plan To Cover Them Will Assure That Things Don't Get Left Out
The list below, Baseball Skills Checklist, was designed some 36 years ago, in my rookie coaching season. It served me well at the time and all years since, providing a checklist and order with which to teach on field details. I include it as a reference for building a list which will work in your particular situation.
The make up of each squad is the determining factor for how much time is spent on the various skills, as well as your coaching philosophy and the age level being coached.
Sitting down before the season starts to develop a map of skills and the days you plan to cover them will assure that things don't get left out.
That map keeps you organized and provides players with a confidence the program is organized and everything that is done, is done for a beneficial reason.
No matter what level you are working with, everyone has a predetermined number of practice days to prepare.
However long you coach, you will never feel that you have enough time to get ready. The trick is to move forward so that your players believe they are ready, whether they truly are or not at that point.
Once the games start, you may find that your plan requires adjustment, as you take note of events in your games. Attempt to fix what is immediatly going wrong and return to your original plan when you can.
The ability to be flexible will pay big dividends.
