On February 16th we held our first Coaches Training of 2018. Thirteen coaches gathered to learn about the science and research behind the Sports Based Youth Development movement, and to discuss the power of building a positive team culture. The session was facilitated by Mariana Folco from Up2Us Sports, and each coach walked out with a renewed sense of purpose and commitment to the work we do.
Our Training Series resumes on March 9th. In total we have four sessions scheduled before the beginning of baseball season, with a focus on building technical skills and promoting positive youth development. Training will be provided by highly-regarded coaches and youth development experts such as Steve Bandura of the Monarchs, Joe Parisi of LaSalle College High School, and more.
