Little League Coaching Clinics series presented by “Big Al” Price
Little League International is pleased to announce an enhancement to its volunteer coaches training programs with the addition of “Big Al Baseball” Clinics and several new tools, materials and resources. In 2011 many Little League districts and leagues across North America will have the opportunity to participate in the clinic series. If you would like to host a clinic please contact Big Al directly at firstname.lastname@example.org.
Big Al and his son Scott have provided hands on training to over 150,000 coaches and their program is recognized internationally. They bring their passion for Little League and a rich set of experiences as players, coaches, instructors and professional educators to every training session.
The clinics are organized into two four-hour training sessions; One session targets coaches and parents working with players 4-to-8 years old and the second session is for coaches of players 9-to-13 yrs old. Both sessions are designed to help coaches and coaching coordinators; teach the skills, correct common mistakes, plan active practices, leverage effective drills and competitions and organize proper warms and pre-game activities. Participants will be introduced to the curriculum needed for the upcoming season.
Big Al and Scott make the training sessions fun and interactive; coaches please come prepared to participate and remember to wear comfortable clothing and bring a glove.
Big Al’s library of training materials and resources match the hands-on training at the clinics. If you are not able to get to one of the clinics, order your own set of training materials at: www.bigalbaseball.com or www.LittleLeagueStore.net.

The Divisions of Little League
The Little League program offers the opportunity for virtually every child to participate in an organized program. All children, boys and girls, between the ages of 5 and 18 are eligible to play. Little League offers locally chartered programs a reasonable degree of latitude in structuring their local program so as to provide the greatest access to the greatest number of children, regardless of their athletic ability.
