How to Build Players Up as a Baseball Coach

Part of the Coaching Baseball For Dummies Cheat Sheet

As a baseball coach, you’re an important person in your players’ lives. You teach them the rules of baseball and you have a hand in developing them as players and as people. Use the tips in the following list to encourage your players:

  • Use the “sandwich” method for giving feedback to players by placing a critical remark between two encouraging comments.

  • Always keep in mind that making mistakes is part of the learning process.

  • Give kids high-fives and pats on the back to reinforce that their efforts are appreciated.

  • Set realistic goals for the kids so they will gain a real sense of satisfaction upon reaching them.

  • Never allow your tone of voice or body language to reveal disappointment in a child’s performance or ability.
