  • Remain in contact with the parents. Communication is critical. Give parents as much notice as possible to schedule changes.
  • Plan your practices before you get to the field. Practice time is very limited. Utilize 2-3 stations at a time and rotate the girls after about 15 minutes. Focus on developing skills. You will need to get your assistant coaches involved.
  • Ask for help. If you need more on-field help, ask a parent to come shag balls or act as a baserunner.
  • Ask for help from your age group director. Having trouble organizing a practice? Having trouble with a parent? Can't get enough parent participation? Ask for help.
