About

CoachDeck cards were created to assist the millions of hard-working youth sports volunteers and parents who would like to help players learn important skills and fundamentals though fun drills and games. The time commitment involved in coaching is enormous, and sometimes it is not possible to thoroughly prepare for each practice. Designed by professional coaches, the drills in CoachDeck can be performed by players from 6-16 and are laid out in a fast, easy-to-understand format that allows you to conduct an extremely effective clinic with little or no preparation. Because the Deck is portable, you’ll always have it with you. The nearly infinite number of drill combinations you can create means kids will never get tired of the “same old practice”.

Inside each deck you will find 52 color-coded drills. Nearly every drill contains a unique, “Make it a Game” feature that will ensure your players want practice to go on forever. Each Deck also contains two double-sided instructional cards on Safety, Terminology, Practice and How to Use CoachDeck. We’re sure that once you use CoachDeck you’ll wonder how you ever did with out it and, you’ll agree, that A Perfect Practice is in the Cards, with CoachDeck.

  1. In your article entitled “Parents and Playing Time” I love the statement statements about “asking the coach.” The best approach, as you stated, is having the child ask the coach for feedback about what he can do to improve his skill set so he could position himself to earn more playing time. Parents helping kids with communication skills and how to best approach the coach is a far better learning approach than the parents taking things into their own hands. When I get into these situations I am more apt to coach the parents about empowering their kids to ask the right questions, rather than complain. It does indeed build character, and self-esteem.

  2. What is the ettiquet for replacing a girl hitting during game time? Our coach took my daughter out & replaced her “after” she was on the field and settling into the batters box. Needless to say she was humilitated and I think the change should have been made “before” she took the field!

    • Yes, ideally you are right, and my guess is that the coach would agree too. The issue is that sometimes coaches have so many things on their minds that they can’t make all the changes and decisions as promptly as they’d like. It could be that he was making other changes to the lineup and this one got past him until it was too late. It is probably not that he meant to embarrass her as much as he thought of the change after she was already out there. I would give him the benefit of the doubt and assume he’s trying his best.
