AAA is an instructional league to develop early skills, learn the basics of the game and have fun.  Throughout the season our coaches instruct to bat utilizing a tee and progress to 'coach pitch'.  The goal of the AAA division is to prepare our ball players for the Minors division.

Preseason Expectations:

·        Beginning in April (as weather permits) Coaches should hold 1-2 practices a week with the focus on introduction of players & coaches, work on simple fundamentals, rules / positional assignments and general familiarization of a t

·        Coaches should also take the preseason as an opportunity to introduce themselves to the players parents and set expectations for the upcoming season.  Focus on general philosophy / rules of AAA, high level outline of the season schedule and field general questions & answer.

In Season Expectations:

·        Coaches in AAA play an active role during games while the team’s are fielding & batting. 

o   Fielding:

§  Keep the girls attention on the game itself (safety)

§  Rotation of players into all positions between innings

§  In game coaching on where to play the ball for “outs” (NOTE: in AAA there are no outs – each child bats each inning and the last batter clears the bases)

o   Batting:

§  At the beginning of the season (can be changed at coaches discretion based on player readiness) - Innings 1-2 are off a tee and from inning 3 forward coaches pitch to each player

§  Base running for AAA is very simple – each child

Other:

·        Work with the “Team Parent” on coordination of key tasks (social media pictures, concessions support and ‘snack vouchers’)

·        Work with the Division VP on coordination with the league.  Key Tasks: Scheduling, Player of the Week Spotlight, Coordinate Team with Overall League Activities (parade, photo day, etc…) and Coordination with Other AAA Coaches

Vice President of AAA Division: Nick Robles (insert contact info here)
