What’s next, Coach?

Have you been in this situation? One drill just ended. There’s still an hour left of practice. All of your players are circled around you, looking up expectantly, wondering what you’re going to have them do next. Since you can’t think of anything off the top of your head, you just throw batting practice or have them scrimmage. And now a promising practice just turned boring. If you’d had a CoachDeck you could have reached in your pocket, pulled out your trusty deck of cards with 52 good, fundamental drills broken into four color-coded categories and picked one out. Or, fan the cards and let a player choose for a little added fun. Each drill can be turned into a game the kids love so they will enjoy learning and love your practices. “What’s next, Coach?”
