FREE! EPGSL COACH RESOURCE CENTER
The EPGSL recognizes and appreciates the challenges that come with being a manager or coach. The recent chartering with Little League Softball has given us access to a free online coaching resource that managers and coaches can turn to for reference, education, or to stay current with the latest drills and coaching techniques.
The resource center is Little League Softball’s latest, most extensive volunteer training and education tool. Content contributors include two-time USA Olympic Softball gold medalist Michele Smith and the Positive Coaching Alliance, along with other Little League Softball licensees, which have committed to provide content in the future.
To utilize the Coach Resource Center, all that is required is for you to click the link and register. It takes less than a minute. When you register your membership is good for the rest of the calendar year.
All of the content available on the website is maintained by Little League Softball and supported by a host of content contributors. Another feature of the site is the video presentations, which in many cases, also are available with a printable transcript, making the information portable.
As coaches begin to utilize the Resource Center, they will have the opportunity to build their own profile and insert items into a personal cache specific to their needs, including practice plans, specific articles and news stories.
CLICK HERE to access the Coach Resource Center.
Below is a short video that provides an overview of the center, which includes great advice on running an efficient practice, a host of fun drills for kids, safety tips, separate sections for softball, and much more.
