here's a great website that's got a lot of info on youth baseball coaching tips, http://www.teachyourkidbaseball.com. There are sections working with a variety of different kinds of kids (the klutz, the natural athlete, the lefty, etc) and tips on training the batter, pitchers, and fielders. I've found some really helpful tips and ideas in here that I've been able to take back to my team that I coach. Good Luck! ;-D

1. Bunting. You can never be too good at bunting.

2. Teach them not to clog the bases. Have a big scary dog chase them if they get on base.

3. Give them a hunger for winning. Nowadays getting a "certificate of participation" is the MOST retarded thing you can do to a kid. So instead, when they win give them ice cream, and when they lose give them brussell sprouts and raw fish.

Personally, I did not find that site helpful at all. It's basically a lot of common sense. :-?

Yeah, that's probably true. I coached my kid's team last year and am going to this year and remembering that and reading that article, I didn't find anything helpful at all.
