This book is written to tell people that Little League Baseball is more than just a game. In my 36 years of being in Little League Baseball, I've seen just about everything. I've seen the way some coaches teach their players to win a game. As Little League coaches, umpires, and officials, we should always be building good relationships with the players, their families, and all other people who are involved. The important thing is to teach the players the values of sportsmanship, teamwork, and fair play.
For the millions of children involved in youth sports, it is their coach who plays a major role in the way they will feel about playing. Unfortunately, few youth sports organizations provide any real training for their coaches. The result can be seen in the increasingly large percentage of kids who drop out of organized leagues. To help coaches understand their important role, including the challenges that lie ahead of them, the National Alliance for Youth Sports--America's premier youth sports advocacy group--has created a simple and straightforward guide for volunteer coaches. It presents the elements that make up good coaching, details the tasks for which a coach is responsible, and explains how a coach can best deal with the most common problems faced both on and off the playing field.
