The Boston Red Sox Foundation has purchased Big Al’s online Coaching Program and Resources and through MYB's affiliation with the Foundation and Little League International it is now available to every MYB coach.
The program includes videos on how to teach the skills, lots of drills to incorporate into your practices and help in identifying and correcting common mistakes. There are ready-to-go practice plans for the pre-season, during the season and plans to help prepare for the post season. The strategy section covers positional play and roles and responsibilities of players in game situations. It also has tips and plans to help you be effective as a coach on game day. Big Al has designed this Coaching program to help you from the start of a Little League season to the finish.
