50 Softball Coaching Tips
by Stacie Mahoe
For coaches who know there's more to it than practice drills and softball strategy. Let's face it, anyone can pick up a softball drill book or dvd and put players through those drills, but it takes a lot more to really bring the best out of the players you work with.
That's where this $3 Kindle e-book comes in. Inside you'll get tips on how to be a great softball coach, things your players wish you knew, how to reduce your softball coaching stress, what softball coaching means, plus some fan favorites, and words of encouragement for those tough coaching times.

Here's wishing you all the best coaching experiences possible.
Youth sports coaches, many of which are volunteers, are the foundation of youth sports in the U.S. Those who are trained and educated on the many different aspects involved with coaching kids are best prepared to provide participants with a fun-filled, safe and rewarding experience.
NAYS Coach Training & Membership Program is the most widely used coach training program in the nation, having trained more than 3 million coaches since its inception in 1981. NAYS Coach Training is available online for coaches to complete at their convenience. It’s also offered on-site in more than 3,000 communities nationwide.
I highly recommend their training and membership. The fee is only $20.
The article below covers a topic that's dear to my heart.

Treating and Preventing Physical Injuries in Young Athletes
The intent of this resource is to help coaches and athletic directors understand the risks of injury for teens and youth participating in contact sports and provide them with the necessary resources to help mitigate those risks and provide first aid for these young athletes. There are basic first aid guidelines, sports injury prevention strategies, injury prevention equipment, and educational resources for coaches.
If you click on the following link, scroll down to the section called “Basic First Aid Guidelines” and spend only 10 minutes reading it, you will be doing a great favor for your players. I highly recommend this, as well as the rest of the information presented at Maryville's website.
