@CoachYourKids who the best coaches in the country truly are

The majority of the coaches in the audience at every ABCA convention doesn’t have anywhere close to the same resources of those presenting. They have less man-power on their coaching staffs; a smaller budget for developmental tools; fields that are literally just fields, not facilities. All of those limitations force those coaches to be more creative in order to make their players and teams better.

@COACHYOURKIDS TO WIN LIFE, NOT GAMES

A couple years ago, a friend of mine had a pretty profound thought about what life was all about. He said, “we spend our entire lives selling tickets to our funeral.” Let that sink in for a second. For as somber as death can be, a funeral shows the lasting impact of how someone lived, through those to attend the services to pay their respects to the family.

@CoachYourKids to find their voice

Baseball is very much a game of routine; those routines, an integral part of a player’s individual development as well as a team’s culture and environment. Hitters get in the cage every day to get their swings right. Pitchers work in the bullpen every day to perfect their delivery. Teams take batting practice, get defensive work in, and run the bases. Every. Single. Day.

@CoachYourKids by unifying

The best teams in sport aren’t always the most talented, but rather the clubs who collectively work together better than the rest as a cohesive unit, with everyone pulling the rope in the same direction. Of course, success requires talent. But as history has taught us, success goes beyond talent.
