DLL Coach Development Program

DAVIS LITTLE LEAGUE COACH DEVELOPMENT PROGRAM

This year, Davis Little League has adopted a new Coach Development Program designed to enhance the baseball experience for our players through unprecedented support for our coaches.  We have developed age and division specific training to help coaches make the most of practice time and help each player find their best success. 

As we ramp up for spring ball, there will be several coach clinics available for each division, Tee Ball through Majors, both with general content as well as position specific clinics including pitching and catching for AA, AAA, and Majors.  If you have any questions or suggestions, we would be thrilled to hear them!  Please shoot us a note at carina@davislittleleague.org.  Come coach with us, your kids deserve our very best, and we're at our best with you.    

Please save these dates if you plan to Manager or Assistant Coach a team this season. Seasoned and new coaches will benefit from this program.
