Coaching Made Easier: How to Successfully Manage Your Youth Baseball Team addresses the pure and simple fundamentals of managing a team of young people. The purpose of this book is to provide greater meaning to the coaching experience by equipping you, as a volunteer coach, to handle the day-to-day management of your team. Huff`s method is a combination of business management and basic teaching skills. An overriding twofold principle, which is paramount to successful youth baseball coaching, is a love of young people and a love of the game of baseball. The absence of either of these two elements will cause the methods in this book to fall short.
The CD-ROM that accompanies this book provides administrative aids and various tools that can help make your coaching experience more enjoyable. The CD-ROM includes two types of files: "templates" and "examples." A roster template is organized to allow you to insert information about your team and use that information in various ways to create worksheets that can assist you in managing your team. A scrapbook template is included to give you a framework upon which to build a keepsake-like scrapbook for your players and supporters.
